The costs associated with agriculture are on the rise and environmental demands are gaining ground by the day, meaning efficient and sustainable farming solutions are needed more than ever. EGNOS offers an affordable solution to move towards precision agriculture. In doing so, it enhances precision, eliminates waste, saves time, reduces fatigue, optimises the use of equipment (thus extending its lifetime) and increases crop yields.
Agriculture in Action
20 December 2019This has been a year of tremendous growth for the GSA, Galileo, EGNOS and the European Space Programme as a whole. We hit the ground running in 2019, buoyed by a wave of optimism following the successful European Space Week, held in in Marseille last December.
19 December 2019GNSS is a key enabler of precision agriculture, allowing farmers to drive their tractors along parallel lines, avoid overlaps and gaps in field cultivation, and reduce their fatigue thanks to satellite-enabled autopilot. GNSS also helps to reduce agriculture’s ecological footprint – a win-win...
19 November 2019The European GNSS Agency (GSA) has released updates to its Reports on User Needs and Requirements. This series of reports is compiled following a systematic process of consultation with the community of users of position, navigation, and time services and technologies. Thanks to these consultations...
