Precision agriculture, or site-specific crop management (SSM), uses a variety of technologies such as sensing, information technologies, and mechanical systems to manage different parts of a field separately. Sub-field crop management is akin to traditional agricultural practices, wherein small-scale, non-mechanized farming permitted spatially variable treatments. USDA NIFA.
