Purpose

The purposes of ISPA are to:
  • Organize and conduct international conferences related to precision agriculture (PA), such as International Conference on Precision Agriculture, European Conference on Precision Agriculture, and other related conferences.
  • Develop and maintain a web-portal to communicate the latest developments in PA with the world, and maintain a member listserv to communicate among society members.
  • Publish a quarterly ISPA e-newsletter for members and other subscribers.
  • Provide members an opportunity for publication of original scientific research in the society sponsored peer-reviewed journal, Precision Agriculture.

Articles of Interest

Let's Define Precision Agriculture

Today, several dozen definitions exist to define the term “precision agriculture”. Some of these definitions are more widely used than others. However, the public perspective on precision agriculture has been changing with time and the original definitions may no longer be representative of this change. Many of the authors of published definitions are members of the International Society of Precision Agriculture (ISPA), and it will be a useful exercise to gather society-wide opinion on the proper definition. Please complete this short survey in an effort to develop a new definition and publish it on the front page of the ISPA webportal.

Nitrogen Management Community - Special Issue

The Precision Nitrogen Management Community is organizing a Special Issue in Remote Sensing journal on “Remote Sensing for Precision Nitrogen Management”, the details can be found at:  http://www.mdpi.com/journal/remotesensing/special_issues/Precision_N

The Global Soil Organic Carbon Map (GSOCmap)

The Global Soil Partnership (GSP) and the Intergovernmental Technical Panel on Soils (ITPS) launched a global endeavor to develop the Global Soil Organic Carbon map (GSOCmap) using a country-driven approach as part of the Global Soil Information System (GLOSIS). GSP provided technical support and on-the-job training to most countries to produce national SOC maps according to standardized specifications. The Global Soil Organic Carbon map V1.0 is an important stepping stone to better know the current Soil Organic Carbon stock stored beneath our feet and soils’ potential for further sequestration. The data are also available as Geotiff.

2015-2024 is the International Decade of Soils

The International Union of Soil Scientists has proclaimed 2015-2024 the International Decade of Soils. IUSS has identified the key roles played by soils in addressing the major resource, environmental, health and social problems which humanity is currently facing. The IUSS believes that it is incumbent to not only maintain the level of activity generated in IYS 2015 but to increase the momentum and the extent of our contributions on soils issues.
