Precision Farming Technology

The figure below presents the proportion of respondents who report using a variety of precision technologies either often or always.

The current level of adoption of precision farming techniques remains somewhat limited. As growers typically list 'profit' and 'environmental benefits' as the primary reasons for adopting technology, SSP may want to concentrate on studies that could provide additional evidence for these benefits. Given current economic conditions and climate concerns, specifically with regard to drought conditions in the southeastern United States, incentives for technologies that conserve water and increase profits are likely to increase in the coming years.
