Today, several dozen definitions exist to define the term “precision agriculture” (http://www.grap.udl.cat/en/presentation/pa_definitions.html). 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. The survey will be closed after 31 May 2018.
