This study was carried out in National Centre for Agricultural Mechanization (NCAM) situated at Ifelodun Local Government Area (LGA) of Kwara State, Nigeria. The research work examines Precision Agriculture concept in agricultural production which is becoming an attractive idea in managing natural resources and realizing modern sustainable development of agriculture based on information technology (IT). It includes technologies such as Geographic Information System (GIS), Satellite Remote Sensing and Global Positioning System (GPS). And it also brings agriculture into digital age. With the latest take-off of the NigeriaSat-1, an earth observing satellite for the meteorological, natural resources, hazard observation and management purposes, Nigeria now joins the league of nations that have access to the opportunities afforded by Satellite Remote Sensing in revolutionizing their agriculture. The market for precision farming therefore is of significant economic importance and offers great opportunities for local farmers in both “pre” and “post” farming seasons. The study was therefore carried out to review the meaning of precision agriculture, highlights its components and describes how Nigerian farmers can harness them for large scale agricultural production.
