The International Society of Precision Agriculture (https://www.ispag.org/ ) adopted the following definition of precision agriculture in 2019:

Precision agriculture is a management strategy that gathers, processes and analyzes temporal, spatial and individual data and combines it with other information to support management decisions according to estimated variability for improved resource use efficiency, productivity, quality, profitability and sustainability of agricultural production.

Topics that are addressed in the journal include:

  • Within-field natural resources variability, including soil and crop variability and characteristics
  • Managing variability, including sampling techniques and methods, nutrient and crop protection chemicals recommendation and crop quality
  • Engineering technology, focusing on sensor systems, computational techniques, positioning systems and control systems for site-specific application
  • Adoption and economics of precision agriculture management
  • Environmental coverage including sediments, leaching, runoff and drainage related to within-field spatial variability.

Precision Agriculture:

  • Presents the most innovative results emerging from research in the field
  • Provides an effective forum for disseminating original and fundamental research and experience in this rapidly advancing field
  • Submissions are encouraged on measurement, management, technology and impact of spatial variability at the within-field scale

  • COVID 19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
