Abstract

Although precision agriculture is touted to enhance both farm returns and environmental quality, its perceived uptake is not as widespread as would be expected. The objective of this paper was to update and compare the adoption rates for precision agriculture technologies in Ontario. Geographic service technologies were the most adopted technology and showed an increase in adoption between 2017 and 2019. The survey was extended to include crop input suppliers across the country. Increasing adoption rates for precision agriculture technologies requires overcoming barriers, specifically reducing the cost and providing demonstrated value.
