Abstract

“Big data”, Internet of things, “Agri4.0”, digital twin, robotics and several other concepts tend to materialize in rural areas and become tools in agricultural management involving Precision and Digital Agriculture. The objective is evaluating perspectives and challenges of the use of precision and digital agriculture in the managements adopted in commercial crops in the state of Paraná, Brazil. To this end, sixty rural producers around the state were interviewed through a questionnaire to understand the technological reality. Many rural producers in Paraná already have smartphones and internet access, but with a lack of knowledge in basic concepts about Digital Agriculture, and with a reduced number of those who already use Precision Agriculture. Many believe that it is possible to improve property management and agricultural management with Digital Agriculture, and only a few already use a digital agriculture platform. However, there are still many challenges to be overcome by the public and private sector, such as quality mobile telephony, compatible machines and specialized technical assistance.
