About Precision Planting
Precision agriculture was born with the introduction of GPS guidance for tractors in the early 1990s. Now widespread, this technology has been adopted around the globe. John Deere was the first to introduce the innovation using GPS location data from satellites. A GPS-connected controller in a farmer’s tractor automatically steers the equipment based on the coordinates of a field. This reduces steering errors by drivers and any overlap passes on the field, which results in less wasted seed, fertilizer, fuel, and time.
According to Open Access Government, the global precision farming market will be worth $4 billion in 2018 at an estimated compound annual growth rate of 13%. Eighty percent of Australian farmers already use GPS on tractors, making Australia the leading pioneer in using the technology, In the U.S., 70% of farmers use GPS on their tractors.
