Listen to CyberAg’s Precision Ag recording: A Supply Chain of Connected Technologies. Precision agriculture is a network of embedded and connected technologies that includes distributed sensor networks, global positioning systems, farm information systems, autonomous farm equipment, automated chemical sprayers and smart devices, all connected by the Internet. The Department of Homeland Security regards precision agriculture as uniquely vulnerable, because it’s added a highly mechanical industry and connected it online, dramatically increasing the attack space.
