Executive Summary

With the increased population and simultaneous increase in demand for food, the agricultural productivity has to increase. There are two ways to increase the production, one is to increase the arable land and the second is to increase the yield per acre. Precision agriculture is one way of increasing the yield per acre of the land. Precision agriculture is one of the modern farming practices that make production more efficient and helps the farmers to work in a better way.

The emerging field of precision agriculture is based on observing, measuring and responding to crops with smart technology. Drones — also called unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) or unmanned aerial systems (UAS) – are giving farmers new possibilities.The precision agriculture industry is growing and increasing to become more efficient because of various growth drivers. The increasing population and increased expenditure on food products is one of the most important and significant growth drivers. Simultaneous inefficiency in increasing the arable land is one of the major growth drivers for the industry. Increased use of GNSS and increased flow of information are the other important growth drivers.
