Precision farming

Precision farming consists in adjusting crop practices while taking the variability within plots or between plots into account.
It can be used to optimise management of the plot in terms of:
agronomy (by adjusting crop practices very precisely to meet the real needs of the plant to satisfy needs for nitrogen),
environment (by reducing expectations related to farming activity, by limiting excess run-off of nitrogen), economic (by increasing the price paid for the farm product by improving the quality obtained through better advice on inputs).
Moreover, precision agriculture offers farmers much information which could become a true farm memory for help with decision making in order to meet the needs for traceability.
