ABSTRACT

“Blind farming,” that is, farming without precision agriculture (PA), is highly inefficient and exacerbates the challenges of addressing climate change. As in the case of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, other African governments should promote PA as a way of optimizing the use of limited resources while mitigating the effects of climate change.
