Precision agriculture has tremendous possibilities but is still nascent in most developing countries. Encompassing everything from satellite imagery to farm-level data, precision agriculture can collect information that is difficult or impossible to obtain manually. Sophisticated analysis of this data helps farmers and other actors to make more informed and timely decisions that allow them to optimize resources for maximum productivity. This panel aims to address one of the key questions of our time: how to feed a growing population with limited resources while leaving a positive environmental footprint?
