The global population is expected to rise up to, nearly, 7.5 billion by the year 2020, and the ability to manage and tackle the ever increasing demand for food would, in all likelihood, continue to plague the world. Global warming continues to be an influential deciding factor in determining agriculture productivity, as well as the soil properties, and sustainability of natural resources. The effect of climate change on agriculture is related to variability in local climates rather than the global climate patterns.
All these concerns marked the way for the entry of the new world of agriculture management practices. Precision farming can significantly reduce the amount of nutrient and other crop inputs used while boosting yields. Farmers, thus, obtain a return
on their investment by saving on phytosanitory and fertilizer costs. The second large- scale benefit of targeting inputs in spatial, temporal and qualitative terms reduce concerns of environmental impacts.
The growth of market is expected to be remarkable, and it estimated to reach $3.72 million by 2018, at an estimated CAGR of 13.36% from 2013 to 2018. The major players in this industry are Deere & Co. (U.S.), Trimble Navigation (U.S.), Topcon positioning systems (U.S.), Raven Industries (U.S.), Precision Planting (U.S), AGCO (U.S.), and so on.
