Title Precision Agriculture Technology For Sustainable Good Agricultural Practice Type (up) B
Year 2013 Publication Trends In Agricultural Engineering 2013 Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 19-24
Keywords
Abstract In the last decades the reduction of protectionist regulations through international trade agreements has led to a globalization of the food market. Although this has promoted the availability for the consumer of a wider variety of food products at lower prices, governments, retailers and consumers around the globe are becoming more and more concerned about the safety and quality of their food products. As food is produced on a global scale, national governments and consumers have lost control over the production methods. Therefore, traceability and verification of good agricultural practices (GAP) is becoming very important. Apart from food safety and quality, this also involves considerations in the environmental impact and sustainability of the production and transport of the available food products. Precision agriculture and the technologies developed for it, including automation and robots, have high potential for reducing the environmental impact of production and for providing the necessary information for verifying the origin and compliance with GAP criteria. Apart from providing governments, retailers and consumers with the information needed to assure food quality and safety, precision agriculture technologies can also help producers to meet the GAP criteria and relief them from the administrative load related to proving compliance. In this paper, some novel developments in agricultural automation and their potential for food safety assurance are discussed.

Title Precision agriculture and agro-environmental policy Type (up) B
Year 2013 Publication Precision Agriculture '13 Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 755-760
Keywords
Abstract A whole-farm model was used to investigate the effects of precision agriculture adoption on production choices under various agro-environmental policy frameworks. Simulation of a typical grain farm in western Kentucky, USA indicated that adoption of precision agriculture does alter responsiveness to policies based on financial incentives for pollution abatement (e.g. emission taxes). Specifically, those farms were less responsive to financial incentives (i.e. abated less pollution), due to higher marginal abatement costs in the form of forgone profits. Policy-makers targeting pollution reductions from agriculture should take into account the increasing use of precision agriculture techniques and their effects on agro-environmental policy.

Title A survey of wireless sensor technologies applied to precision agriculture Type (up) B
Year 2013 Publication Precision Agriculture '13 Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 801-808
Keywords
Abstract This paper gives a state-of-art of wireless sensor network (WSN) technologies and solutions applied to precision agriculture. The paper first considers applications and existing experiences that show how WSN technologies have been introduced in to agricultural applications. Then, a survey in hardware and software solutions is related with special emphasis on technological aspects. Finally, the paper shows how five networking and technological solutions may impact the next generation of sensors. These are: (1) scalar wireless sensor networks; (2) wireless multimedia sensor networks; (3) mobility of nodes; (4) tag-based systems; and (5) smart-phone applications.
