House overwhelmingly supports satellite-driven precision agriculture

Leah Garden of GreenBiz reports that the House of Representatives has passed a bill to support precision agriculture.

The C3 Take
  • The House of Representatives has passed the Precision Agriculture Satellite Connectivity Act, which requires the Federal Communications Commission to determine whether U.S. satellites can be used to improve the practice of precision agriculture.
  • Precision ag use GPS satellites to plant and monitor crops and allows farmers to increase the efficiency and productivity of operations, which leads to higher yields and fewer emissions.
  • Supporting America’s farmers is critical to meeting the world’s food and environmental needs.

“The bill is on its way to the Senate. If it passes and is eventually signed into law by President Joe Biden, the FCC will have 15 months to investigate and present a plan to Congress with ways to improve satellite technology and enable greater access for farmers.”
