ICT in Agriculture: Precision Farming

This course describes the use of of Unmanned Air Systems (UAS) in agricultural Activities. It was added as part of the course ICT in Agriculture, considering the advancing use of 'drones' for such purposes in Europe.

There are two main chapters: 1. Definition of precision agriculture, 2. Description of the equipment and its uses.

The course is addressed to producers and organisations as a means to raise awareness on the potential benefits of this technology. This technology however is not so effective for small scale farms.
