Precision Farming is simply a different way of looking at farm management.
While most farmers recognize that there are different characteristics within each paddock, previously, it was simply not economic or practical to use this information. Hence, in general, farmers treated paddocks uniformly, in a “one size fits all” approach. The heart of Precision Farming is that it seeks to adjust farm practices to match variations of soils and terrain at much smaller increments within a paddock.
This new trend in “site specific” farm management is only made possible by the merging of several unrelated technology advances.
