Project summary: 

Only 6% of the Austrian farmers are using data and GNSS/GPS-based precision farming, which is very popular across the world. Therefore the economic and environmental benefits of precision farming are not being exploited. The project “GIS-ELA” will evaluate the potentials of precision farming technologies for Austria and promote its use.

Project results: 

Testing of the technical equipment on the pilot farms as a reference for Austrian farmers.
