  • The Application and Development of Pesticide Precision in Japan   2019-06-04

    The agricultural working population has been decreasing in Japan. On the other hand, the average age of farmers has been increasing. These factors have caused farmland to be consolidated, though agricultural management hierarchy is becoming polarized. To solve these problem, a national project in the agricultural machinery field, entitled “Smart Agriculture”, has been started. The purpose of “Smart Agriculture” is to increase working efficiency and reduce labor costs by using robotic techniques, as well as information and communication technology.
