Dutch farmers, faced with a scarcity of available land, use precision agriculture technology to increase yields rather than trying to expand the amount of land on which they grow food.
Using technology like hydroponic cultivation and greenhouses, these farmers are not only able to increase their yields but also reduce their use of natural resources.
Thermal cameras help them to detect disease and issues with irrigation.
Soil scans help them monitor soil quality.
“My definition of precision farming is doing the right thing in the right moment in the right place.” -Jacob Van Den Borne
