Center for Innovative Agriculture (CIA) is non-governmental organization, aimed at development and popularisation of precision agriculture technologies in Bulgaria and supporting the farmers in implementation of innovative practices.
“Appropriate action at the right time in the right place” – in our opinion this is the best definition for Precision Agriculture. Whether it is tillage, sowing, application of fertilizers or plant protection products or other agricultural activity, carrying out the proper technology at the necessary extent will bring the optimal result.
Implementation of precision technologies in the farms leads to comprehensive benefits connected with lowering of the production costs, optimization of the yields, lowering of potential environment pollution and at large – sustainable growth of agricultural sector.
The precision agriculture and organic farming are also considered as possible models for sustainable development in the frame of Common Agricultural Policy of EU for the period 2014-2020.
