Precision Agriculture Laboratory

Precision agriculture offers the possibility of growing better quality crops, while optimising the use of inputs and minimising environmental impacts. It is a revolution in agriculture brought about by the application of information technology. The University of Sydney’s Precision Agriculture Laboratory (PA Lab) was established in 2012 during a Faculty restructure. The PA Lab is the descendant of the Australian Centre for Precision Agriculture (ACPA) which was established in 1995. The mission of the ACPA was to provide excellent PA science and training, leading agricultural industries to practical, sustainable precision agricultural systems. The PA Lab continues this vital mission.
