Abstract

Precision agriculture, or site-specific management, and environmental quality protection are inseparably linked. However, the impacts of precision agriculture on environmental quality has been poorly documented, and most scientists believe that judiciously applying agricultural inputs only when and where needed will reduce the impacts on the environment. This chapter will discuss the potential impacts of precision farming on the ecosystem.
