Journal of Precision Agriculture

Aims and Scope

Journal of Precision Agriculture (JPA) is an online journal and it is an emerging field that combines the use of modern technologies and data to manage agricultural production systems from a local to a global scale. As an interdisciplinary approach, it combines knowledge of soil and environmental science, engineering, economics, agronomy, and information systems to identify, measure, and respond to spatial variability in fields and farms. The goal of precision agriculture is to optimize yields and reduce costs while simultaneously preserving the environment.


The most essential components of precision agriculture are the use of sensors and geographic information systems for decision-making, such as sensing and mapping soil properties and accounting for the variability within fields to customize and manage inputs. Sensors can detect topography, soil properties, and crop health, while geographic information systems can help visualize, monitor, and control field management processes. Another important component of precision agriculture is the use of automation and robotics to reduce labor costs and maximize efficiency. Automation and robotics can be used to reduce chemical use while improving productivity, such as in the application of pesticides and herbicides. Robotics can also be used to plan, manage and monitor crop production processes.


Journal of Precision agriculture (JPA) is the practice of using advanced technology to increase the efficiency and accuracy of agricultural production. It involves using GPS and sensors to identify and accurately measure soil types and other environmental conditions, such as rainfall and humidity. JPA also uses sophisticated tools to manage crop production from planting to harvest. This technology is designed to help farmers optimize the use of resources, increase yields, and reduce environmental impact.


The scope of the JPA is broad, reaching from fundamental studies in crop production and nutrient management to crop management decision support systems. Additional topics of interest for JPA include but are not limited to agricultural engineering, soil science, crop physiology, bioinformatics, biophysical modeling, data acquisition and data processing, decision support systems, remote sensing, crop production systems, and educational programs. 


JPA combines multiple disciplines, including global positioning system (GPS) technology, geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing, data analysis, engineering, and automation. By using sensors and advanced computer modeling, it provides real-time intelligence about the weather, soil, and crop conditions and identifies areas requiring special attention. Because of its advanced technology and data-driven approach, precision agriculture can improve overall yields and save time, effort, and money. It also enables farmers to make decisions more quickly and easily, ensuring the optimal use of both chemical and non-chemical resources.
