Book Title: “Precision Agriculture Technologies for Food Security and Sustainability”
This call for book chapters is seeking chapter proposals for a book in Precision Agriculture Technologies to be published by IGI Global, an international publisher of progressive academic research indexed by Scopus, Clarivate Analytics, INSPEC, PsycINFO, WEB OF SCIENCE, and other Indices. This publication is anticipated to be released in 2020.
Scope:This book is about the management concept known as Precision Agriculture (PA), also known as precision farming, site specific crop management, or precision agronomy. PA integrates new technologies with the agronomic experience to intelligently manage the high spatial variability of all agricultural variables and the time-scales at which these variables change in such a way that consolidates the agricultural decision making process to take the right action in the right place at the right time. It is proven that the right application of PA helps to increase the size and quality of the agriculturalproduction, saves resources, improves environmental quality, helps to achieve self-sufficiency, food security and agricultural sustainability, increases exports, in addition to other economic benefits.
This book is dedicated to the usage of the engineering technologies: electronics, information technologies, communication networks, renewable energy systems, artificial intelligence, etc. in PA systems span all of the agricultural diversities, to collect field data, convey it, record, process and analyze the collected data, extract decisions and take automatic or manual actions.
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before Oct 25, 2019, a chapter proposal of 1,000 to 2,000 words clearly explaining the mission and concerns of his or her proposed chapter through the link: https://www.igi-global.com/publish/call-for-papers/call-details/4314. Authors will be notified by Nov 8, 2019, about the status of their proposals and sent chapter guidelines.
