Editorial Precision Agriculture, 2, 117, 2000 2001 Kluwer Academic Publishers. Manufactured in The Netherlands. Dear Readers, It is a real privilege to have been invited to join Pierre Robert as Co-Editor-in-Chief of Precision Agriculture. My first year ‘‘on-board’’ has been spent in a special project to capitalize on all the good research presented at the 2nd European Conference on Precision Agriculture, held in Odense, Denmark in 1999. Some 30 of the papers presented at that conference have been updated with new data, discussion and approaches by their authors and submitted to Precision Agriculture. This special issue is the first result, to be followed by several more. They reflect the multi-disciplinary nature of precision agriculture and illustrate the wide diversity of research taking place in Europe and elsewhere. In the year that these special issues are published, the 3rd European Conference is also taking place, this time in Montpellier, France. Hopefully, more good research will be presented there which will provide the basis for further paper submissions to the Journal. The Conference takes place against a background of increasing pressures on agriculturefalling profitability, disease BSE, Foot & Mouth , environmental pressures. The temptation for the farmer is to move away from the ‘‘sophistication’’ of precision agriculture with its expensive technology and intensive information requirement. Let us hope that the alternative scenario prevailsthat precision agriculture is the rational way forward in the face of all these pressures. Dr John V. Stafford Co-Editor-in-Chief http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Precision Agriculture Springer Journals
