PINHO, Tatiana; BOAVENTURA-CUNHA, José  and  MORAIS, Raul. Electronic and computation technologies in data collection and integration in precision agriculture. Rev. de Ciências Agrárias [online]. 2015, vol.38, n.3, pp.291-304. ISSN 0871-018X.

The population growth and consequent demand for food, water scarcity, rigid quality standards and legislation, higher concern about environmental impact, among other factors, have powered a new agricultural paradigm grounded in sustainability and higher productivity of crops. In this sense, precision agriculture is an alternative to traditional cultivation techniques, where the use of information technologies in decision support systems reduces the risks associated to cultivation conditions, enabling a more efficient management of natural resources, improving the productivity and minimizing the operation costs. This work aims the revision of some electronic and computers technologies used in precision agriculture systems, regarding remote sensing techniques, sensors networks, visual inspection and data integration.

Keywords : electronics; data integration; information systems; precision agriculture.
