The Third National Conference on Agro-Informatics and Precision Agriculture 2012 (AIPA 2012) 1-3 August 2012
The Indian Society of Agricultural Information Technology (INSAIT) cordially invites you to participate in the third national conference on Agro-Informatics and Precision Agriculture (AIPA 2012). The AIPA 2012 will be organized by INSAIT in collaboration with International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (IIIT-H), India and University of Agriculture Sciences Raichur (UASR), India.
The conference is supported by International Society of Precesion Agriculture (ISPA), USA.
Over the last few decades, several research and development efforts have been made to exploit the potential of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) to improve the efficiency of production agriculture and achieve sustainable development. Precision Agriculture involves identification, analyses and management of spatial and temporal variability in soils and crops for profitability, sustainability and protection of the environment. Precision Agriculture employs emerging technologies such as ICT; geospatial technologies such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and Remote Sensing (RS); Sensor Technologies and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN).
The AIPA 2012 conference will focus on the numerous developments in the important areas of agro-informatics and precision farming relevant in the present agricultural scenario. Further, the conference promotes and encourages academia, scientists, extension agencies, farmers and agribusiness institutions to address research issues pertaining to Agro-Informatics and Precision Agriculture.
