Welcome To 8th Asian-Australasian

Conference on Precision Agriculture

Indian Society of Agricultural Engineers is pleased to announce the 8ACPA to be held at Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana. Presentations from our keynote speakers will include: What can we learn about use of IT tools for agriculture in developing countries, use of judious inputs, what can it offer, benefits, limitations and expectation to farm information management systems. 8th Asian-Australasian Conference on Precision Agriculture (8ACPA) is among one of the three international Precision Agriculture conferences that are conducted biannually as part of a series – each held in different locations around the world. At the ACPA, world-leading scientists will present and discuss the research and development of Precision Agriculture in the Asian-Australasian region and around the world.

The Conference will include field trips to view practical examples of on going precision agriculture and horticulture in India. India offers spectacular landscapes and extraordinary opportunities to see diverse and first class agricultural production systems which are highly profitable. Presentations from our keynote presenters will include: A world view, diversity and advancement, protected cultivation, automation, hands-free robot fields, proximal and remote crop sensing. It will cover a range of needs of farmers and growers to be informed of the latest developments and application of precision agriculture.
