Although benefits of precision agriculture are promoted from a long period, however, its diffusion progressing in a slower manner.

The survey revealed the details of the application of different technologies and their impacts as perceived among arable farms. Special subsidies implementing into the “greening” component of CAP will be an inciting factor for supporting the wider spread of PA.
