Precision Agriculture

What are the advantages of Precision Agriculture?

Precision agriculture deals with the study of the spatial variability of the factors that affect the crop, to carry out sustainable agricultural management, thus achieving economic, environmental, and social advantages.

    The importance of VPD in Cannabis cultivation

    What is VPD (Vapor Pressure Deficit)?

    VPD is the amount of water vapor needed at a given time to saturate the atmosphere. It refers to the evaporative capacity of the air.
    The VPD value represents the difference between the amount of water vapor that the atmosphere can retain (which depends on temperature) and the amount of water vapor contained in it at a given time (relative humidity). It is normally measured in kilopascals (kPa).

    The barriers to entry to precision agriculture

    According to a report by McKinsey & Company, if our world continues to develop as it is, our demand for crops will at least double by 2050. As a result, there is increasing pressure on food producers and the shift towards crop farming techniques. Accuracy is becoming vital due to changing circumstances.

    The United States was one of the first countries to start using such techniques in 1998. Since then, soil and crop monitoring, variable rate input applications, and tractor guidance systems have become increasingly widespread. There is evidence that these tools were adopted in 45 percent to 55 percent of the land in 2010-2013.

    The importance of training for the implementation of technologies

    In a previous post we pointed out the importance of information to achieve efficient irrigation.

    In the current post we will emphasize the importance of training to assimilate the use of information and its interpretation in the process of making irrigation decisions.

    The importance of information for efficient irrigation

    What is already the norm in the industry: measure, quantify, relate, and decide, is a necessity in agriculture.

    The importance of information for efficient irrigation

    All these methods are valid, for the mere fact that they have yielded results. But with what precision?

    Generally the perception of soil moisture by the farmer is biased since he does not see what happens below the surface, which leads to overwatering.

    An efficient irrigation is an irrigation that allows to create and maintain in the soil an adequate water balance between water, air and soil particles, thus avoiding unnecessary stress of the plant, either by root asphyxia, or by deficit irrigation. Avoiding this stress, the plant achieves energy savings that are manifested in an increase in quality and production and greater environmental efficiency.

    The Water Footprint for Skeptics

    What do we count in the calculation of the Water Footprint (HH)?

    In the first level how much water we apply to the crop, from pre-sowing to harvesting. We know this through the water meter. But this is not all, since this volume applied to the crop, we must subtract the volume of water that returns to the aquifer through drainage.

    From here we can already understand that the Water Footprint is composed of the amount of water used for the production of a product, or service, that does not return to the "original source", in this case to the corresponding aquifer.

    Accumulation of heat units

    Plants respond to a life cycle - "phenological states", such as germination, vegetative state, flowering, fruiting, winter rest (in trees).
