Use and Perceptions of Precision Agriculture Technologies
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Use of precision agriculture (PA technologies has increased with advances in technologies and increased farmer awareness of PA's usefulness and potential profitability. Many farmers and agribusinesses are still uncertain about the wisdom of adopting PA technologies. More information on use, costs and benefits of PA technologies is needed by producers, agribusinesses, consultants, and extension personnel making decisions about adoption of PA. In December 1999 an attempt was made to gather some of this information by conducting a survey of persons attending the Ag Crop Management Conference sponsored by the University of Missouri. Attendees of this conference were professional chemical applicators, managers, consultants, and seed and chemical dealers. Seventy-five usable surveys were returned, representing 22% of conference attendees.
