    Abstract

    Site-specific crop management or precision farming (PF) is a highly complex management system for site-specific input application of lime, fertilizers and pesticides in arable farming. The Global Positioning System (GPS) is the backbone of the system. To conduct PF several technical systems and data interpretations are needed. FP is aiming to be used by large farms because of scale advantages. In reality adoption and benefits harvested are limited. We have analysed information from 28 experts and stakeholders and focus group meetings with 35 participants and a multinational farm survey with 204 responses. There are problems both from the soft side of technology but also from the hardware and software which can explain diffusion speed.
