The Indian National Space Promotion and Authorization Center (IN-SPACE) is all set to organize a short course next month focusing on the use of advanced technology in agriculture.

The five-day course, starting from November 20 in Ghaziabad, aims to acquaint participants with practical and theoretical applications of space technology in agriculture.

Space technology has brought about a significant change in the agricultural sector. It has introduced precision farming, which increases efficiency, sustainability and productivity. Using data from satellites and other space assets, farmers can now make well-informed decisions and optimize their farming operations like never before.

Precision agriculture, driven by space technology, empowers farmers to tailor their actions to specific areas within their fields. Additionally, it offers valuable insight into weather forecasting and climate data, allowing farmers to plan their planting and harvesting schedules with greater precision.

Timely weather warnings provided by space technology can help protect crops from extreme conditions, thereby reducing losses from unexpected storms or droughts.

As a result, space technology has become an indispensable tool in the agricultural sector, promoting precision farming practices that promote sustainability, increase productivity, and contribute to global food security. are

IN-SPACe, established under the Department of Space, has a mandate to promote, enable, authorize and monitor non-governmental organizations and academic institutions engaged in space activities.

This initiative highlights the important role that space technology plays in revolutionizing agriculture and empowering farmers with the tools they need to thrive in a changing environment.
