WHAT IS PRECISION AGRICULTURE?
PRECISION AG is a set of technologies that have helped propel agriculture into the computerized information-based world, and is designed to help farmers get greater results and increased control over the management of farm operations.
Our suppliers each offer technology to make farming more efficient and increase profitability by:
- Reducing fertilizer costs

- Reducing pollution through poor use of chemicals
- Improving crop yields
- Providing better information for management decisions
- Providing better farm records essential for sale and succession
Many studies have been conducted and the evidence proves that even the addition of basic GPS guidance will result in 10% less input costs. Perhaps the largest savings can be found in variable rate application systems which can be partnered with mapping technology - results show an average of 40% savings and the cost of a complete system can be paid back in as little as 2 years. Many farmers continually use consutants for in-depth mapping services while others require minimal assistance after the initial set-up. In precision farming, there is a system for every farmer's needs which will cut costs, increase yields, and decrease time spent in the field.
