Precision agriculture (PA)–defined as a set of technologies that combines acquisition, analysis, management, and delivery of information to help make site-specific decisions, with the ultimate goal of optimizing production–will play an important role in addressing this grand challenge. At the heart of the evolving tools, technologies, and information management strategies found in precision agriculture is remote sensing. However, the technology of capturing, analyzing, storing, and delivering the remotely sensed observations associated with precision agriculture is changing rapidly, thus making it difficult to keep up with the ever-expanding volume of scientific research. It is time to take stock of the current state-of-the-art in the remote sensing associated with precision agriculture.
