Podcast: Beyond Precision Agriculture

Podcast: Beyond Precision Agriculture

Precision agriculture is being practiced in the field, with robots, drones, and software. Now, researchers are looking beyond, at individual plants in the field and even digital twins.
Robots are now being deployed on farms to eliminate weeds, apply fertilizer, insecticides, and pesticides, and can be guided with information gathered from drones on soil and water conditions. The farmer remains in charge, downloading information and applying it to the new system. Researchers at Iowa State University and elsewhere are now looking beyond, to ultra-precision agriculture. Soumik Sarkar, associate professor of mechanical engineering at Iowa State, talks about work being done to isolate individual plants in the field, and the development of digital twins for agriculture.
