For the first time, the 15th New Ag Conference & Exhibition held in Berlin hosted a technical session on Precision Agriculture. This reaffirms the commitment of New Ag International with this new paradigm of agriculture. Ten high calibre speakers made their way to the stage and covered most aspects of Precision Ag: The dilemma of Precision Ag scale: Is PA only viable in large-scale farming? The use of weather information in PA, Different PA solutions using remote sensing data, Integral solutions implemented in the so called Farm Management Information Systems; the farmer's point of view on PA and, finally, why PA is not a success (yet)? Maybe Precision Ag is not the ultimate solution to agricultural problems, but it is here to stay. 'In 10-15 years agriculture will be PA or it will not be!'

Using Sentinel-2 images to implement Precision Agriculture techniques in large arable fields: First results of a case study Escolà i Agustí, Alexandre; Badia, N.; Arnó Satorra, Jaume; Martínez Casasnovas, José Antonio (The Animal Consortium, 2017-07-16)This work assesses the potential of Sentinel-2A images in precision agriculture for Barley production in a case study. Two workflows are proposed: 1) images were acquired with a relatively simple methodology to follow the ...
Use of farmer knowledge in the delineation of potential management zones in precision agriculture: a case study in maize (Zea mays L.) Martínez Casasnovas, José Antonio; Escolà i Agustí, Alexandre; Arnó Satorra, Jaume (MDPI, 2018-06-13)One of the fields of research in precision agriculture (PA) is the delineation of potential management zones (PMZs, also known as site-specific management zones, or simply management zones). To delineate PMZs, cluster ...
Escolà i Agustí, Alexandre; Martínez Casasnovas, José Antonio; Arnó Satorra, Jaume (New Ag International SARL, 2017-03-01)It is said that GPS triggered Precision Agriculture (PA), allowing the first yield maps to be created. That may or may not be precise but what is true is that the use of global positioning systems has boosted PA, offering ...
