Precision delivery of agricultural chemicals — whether they be pesticide, herbicide or fertiliser — will be the big revolution in farming technology over the course of the next 10 years.

Whether systems are fully automatic and robotic, or still pulled behind a human operated tractor, it seems inevitable that the future of agrichem lies in smaller doses of highly concentrated, highly effective chemicals, delivered to the square centimetre where they are most needed. Product developers should take this opportunity to reimagine basic assumptions regarding chemical delivery to the field.
