Precision Irrigation

Globally, 70 percent of all freshwater is used for agriculture. The water footprint of crop production is unsustainably high in many parts of the world, including portions of the U.S. and Asia.

As global food demand rises, demand for water in growing crops is also projected to increase. However, much of the water used in agriculture today is wasted. Advances in precision irrigation will allow more efficient use of water while increasing crop yields by sensing and applying water only where it is needed and can provide the most value.
