Do you know what precision agriculture is and what are the main benefits of it?
Precision agriculture is a new trend in economical and environmentally friendly farming. Its main principle is to carry out the cultivation intervention at the right time in the right place and with the right intensity. And it uses modern technologies such as GPS (Global Positioning System), GIS (Geographic Information System) and Remote Sensing (Earth Remote Sensing) to make agricultural production more efficient and reduce costs.
We at the Agricultural College and Secondary Agricultural School believe that schools should be the bearers and promoters of new practices and educate young professionals who are already in great demand on farms.
And so, from September 2022, we will welcome new students to our study fields focused on business and mechanization in precision agriculture. Students can look forward to working with drones, remote controlled machines and other modern technologies.
