Precision agriculture

'Twice as much for twice as little,' is the motto in agriculture. We need to feed more mouths worldwide, whereas the production resources are becoming scarcer and the impact of agriculture on the climate and environment must be reduced. Precision agriculture offers a way forward and satellite information plays a crucial role therein.

Precision agriculture delivers a higher productivity, lower environmental footprint, transparent production and smart production methods. And most importantly: all knowledge and technology that we are developing in the Netherlands in this area is an important export product for the agricultural sector worldwide.

The Dutch government encourages the use of satellite data in the agricultural sector. NSO itemises the needs of the sector, as well as the steps that the government, industry, science and the agricultural sector itself must take to ensure that, by 2030, farmers have a daily task list based on satellite data.
