Site-specific crop and soil management is as old as agriculture, however, mechanisation during the 20th century saw it replaced with the uniform farming of land. In many cases, the blanket application of fertilisers and pesticides, combined with excessive seeding and over-tilling, has resulted in land degradation and damage to the environment. The development of precision farming techniques has helped automate site-specific management, using technology to make better decisions around the usage of fertiliser, water and seeds. By leveraging real-time data to monitor and measure outcomes, MIRA-managed farms are improving soil health and yield by tailoring inputs to match the specific needs of grain crops, permanent crops, irrigated cotton and oilseeds
