Market Overview

Precision planting is an agricultural method that uses modern technology to plant seeds in the field at specific places, depths, and spacing. Precision planting aims to maximize crop yields by giving each seed the best chance of germinating and growing into a healthy plant. This can be accomplished in a variety of ways, including the use of specialized equipment that can precisely control the placement of seeds and fertilizer in the soil. Variable rate planting is a type of precision planting that uses GPS technology to map the field and determine the optimal planting rate for different areas. Precision planting focuses on developing intelligent solutions that, through the use of a unique and original methodology, improve planting, liquid application, and harvest activities on farms all over the world. This could be done by modifying existing equipment or by purchasing new equipment and incorporating Precision Planting techniques. The most favourable development in farm management made possible by Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) this century is sustainable precision planting. This is the most recent technological breakthrough based on sustainable precision planting and the production of healthy foods, and it includes increased profitability and production, economic efficiency, and a reduction in environmental negative effects, which is driving this market's revenue growth.


Increasing emphasis on integrating geomapping and sensor data with planting equipment, increasing pressure on the agriculture industry to increase food production, increasing demand for precision planting due to benefits such as optimal plant growth and higher crop yield, significant cost-savings associated with precision planting and seeding equipment are some of the major and vital factors that will likely augment the growth of the precision planting market.


Some of the key players in the market are focusing on producing advanced agricultural equipment and machinery for agricultural use. For instance, in February 2022, Kinze Manufacturing has unveiled its new 3505 True Speed high-speed planter for the 2023 crop season, offering advanced technology and increased productivity to small farms and fields.

Driving Factors

Precision planting allows farmers to achieve seed uniformity and control over seed placement depth. They also protect crops from natural disasters by gathering real-time geospatial data on soil crop yield, weather conditions, and plant conditions, as well as other inter and intra-field data. Precision planting and seeding equipment also ensure that seeds, fertilizers, nutrients, herbicides, and pesticides are used efficiently, reducing the waste of valuable resources. Precision planting also makes use of mapping software, smart sensors, variable rate technology (VRT), yield mapping, and other techniques to boost crop yield while improving land fertility and profitability. Furthermore, precision planting and seeding equipment help reduce energy and fuel consumption by utilizing satellite guidance technologies in navigation applications, such as GPS or GIS. The introduction of precision planting with innovative features including controllers, smart connector systems, as well as liquid control and delivery systems has also aided in their adoption. These are the major factors to boost the market in the upcoming period.


Restraining Factors

Precision planting hardware is costly, which is a major market barrier. Precision planting requires the use of GPS, drones, GIS, VRT, and satellite devices, as well as skilled personnel, which incurs additional operating and maintenance costs. Running a precision planter costs more per acre than seeding with an air seeder or drilling with an opener drill. Farmers and growers require technical knowledge to effectively use precision planting equipment. As a result, poor farmers in developing countries like India, China, and Brazil fail to employ these tools and techniques.


Market Segmentation


The Global Precision Planting Market share is classified into system type, product & services, and technology.

  • In 2021, the high speed precision planting system segment held the largest revenue share in the global precision planting market.

Based on the system type, the global precision planting market is differentiated into precision air seeders, high speed precision planting systems, drones, and others. Among these, the high speed precision planting system segment held the largest revenue share in the global precision planting market. The explanation for this rise is that high speed planting increases daily planting efficiency by allowing for the planting of more crops during constrained planting windows, which drives revenue growth in the segment. Farmers frequently choose high speed planting technology to maintain the size of their system hardware while planting more acres per hour with the same workforce.


  • The hardware segment is expected to hold the largest share of the precision planting market over the study period.

Based on the product & services, the global precision planting market is classified into software, hardware, and others. Among these, the hardware segment is expected to hold the largest share of the precision planting market over the study period. The growing use of control and automation devices, including drones/unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), guidance systems, GPS devices, control systems, display systems, and delivery systems, display systems, has aided in the growth of this segment. Hardware helps farmers by providing them with the tools they need for precise planting, as well as the control and automation of field management, data analysis techniques, and monitoring, allowing them to monitor, regulate, and optimize their farm operations.


The services segment is estimated to grow the fastest during the predicted period. The growth can be attributed due to software assisting farmers in precision planting, micro-plot tracking, crop monitoring, variable rate spraying, and other tasks, including calculating corn production, testing different mapping on the same research area, and optimizing input applications. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) tools have been recognized as a possible strategy for reshaping the agriculture industry through advanced software solutions.


  • Ground technology is anticipated to hold the largest share of the precision planting market during the projected period.

Based on the technology, the global precision planting market is categorized into aerial technology and ground technology. Among these, ground technology is expected to hold the largest share of the precision planting market during the forecast period. The growth can be attributed due to the ground-based technology allows farmers to collect real-time data with precise location information, making it ideal for mapping irrigation systems, crops, and roadways, identifying areas with damaged plants, and conducting soil tests in specific field areas. Farmers use sensors to collect data and electrochemical sensors to examine electrical soil characteristics, such as the quantity of potassium. Furthermore, mechanical sensors in contact with the ground can assess the classifications and densities of the elements. These are some of the main drivers of this segment's revenue growth.
