Factsheet 24 is an account of how precision technology - the use of electronic equipment to improve the precision of farming operations - can be part of the climate change solution.

Precision technology involves the use of electronic equipment to improve the precision of farming operations. This in turn can help to optimise the use of many of a farm’s resources and inputs. Such optimisation leads to a reduction in fuel, fertiliser and energy use and an improvement in soil structure and the efficiency of water use.
