Precision agriculture technologies are gaining steam in the US and there are a growing number of companies introducing innovative products and services. The technologies range from GPS guidance and auto steering to big data and drones. The use of these technologies in agriculture allows growers to reduce inputs (seed, fertilizer, herbicides, etc.) while increasing yields and profits. This second edition of Precision Agriculture lists the technologies, the major players and emerging companies in this growing market. Over 170 companies are listed as participants and key M&A, investments and partnerships are also described.
According to the author, Eric Oganesoff, Managing Director of FOCUS Investment Banking, “Precision agriculture is being increasingly adopted as growers and crop consultants learn that many are seeing an increase yield per acre and lower costs due to the adoption of many of the technologies available. It is an exciting time in agriculture where some of the most modern and advanced technologies including cloud computing, big data analysis and advanced sensors are being used. A key driver is the vast amount of data becoming available. Successful implementations of precision agriculture depend on analyzing and using the data effectively.”
