The precision farming practices are expected to witness a surge in the adoption as they enable farmers to accurately manage variations in the field, increase productivity, and reduce production costs. These practices help to gather relevant information by analyzing the real-time data about the conditions of the soil, crops, and local weather predictions and provide actionable insights to farmers with directions about the soil management, crop rotation, harvesting time, and optimal planting time. The precision farming technology is gaining popularity in the agriculture sector as it holds the potential to increase crop yield by using advanced IT-based agriculture methods.  

Rapid use of the IoT in the agriculture sector is contributing to the growth of the precision farming market. Farm managers & producers are leveraging the capabilities of the IoT devices, such as sensors, GPS & GNSS systems, and automated steering systems, for soil sampling, temperature monitoring, filed mapping, irrigation management, and several other applications. These devices provide real-time insights on how to improve farming practices for greater efficiency. The growing uptake of drone technology for crop monitoring, identifying planting flaws, and pest & disease control & detection will also lead to the market growth. For instance, in May 2017, QuestUAV introduced DATAhawkAG all-round package for the precision agriculture mapping. When equipped with MicaSense RedEdge camera, the Q-100 DATAhawkAG helps to capture images in five discrete spectral bands and detect patterns co-related to plant stress and nutrient content.

Precision farming practices started in the early 1980s when farmers used the GPS technology and yield monitors to gather & analyze crop-related data. The early 1990s also witnessed a huge adoption of handheld devices, which enabled farmers to trace field boundary, record soil sample location, and make crop observation. However, farmers and researchers faced several challenges related to the gathering & processing of huge data. This resulted in the adoption of smart technologies, such as the IoT sensors, drones, and mobile devices, for gathering real-time data to increase the farm productivity. The growing penetration of AI and Big Data analytics will also contribute to the precision farming market growth over the forecast period.
