Greece — Drones that spray with precise accuracy, robots that pick up produce, self-driving systems that keep an eye on the health of broiler chickens, and artificial intelligence that can forecast crop production before the tree buds have even opened. These are some of the solutions that integrative precision agriculture offers to a sector that is utilizing technology to address both traditional and novel problems.

The first International Conference for Integrative Precision Agriculture, a multidisciplinary gathering intended to harness collective expertise to address the challenge of feeding a global population expected to exceed 9 billion people by 2050 and bringing with it an estimated 70% increase in food demand, recently took place at the University of Georgia. Students, scientists, and agrotechnology leaders from around the world attended.

The University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences’ managing editor is Maria M. Lameiras.
