Bonus information:

Precision farming, sustainable agriculture, carbon reduction practices, all require reliable broadband internet.

“Consumers who want well-sourced, sustainable food and a story behind it have little understanding what any of this technology means, or does, or even exists.”

“But if consumers knew about it, even a little bit, they might start realizing the need for better rural internet.”

“Consumers who want to reduce the carbon intensity of their food should advocate for better rural internet.”

From: Universal internet access helps make food more sustainable.

Precision Agriculture Study

Precision agriculture uses technologies to enhance sustainability through the more efficient use of critical inputs, such as land, water, fuel, fertilizer, and pesticides. Essentially, farmers who use precision agriculture tools use less to grow more.
