Precision Agriculture is becoming ever more relevant as the agricultural industry struggles to come to terms with the environment, economics, traceability, vehicle guidance and crop management. Whilst some benefits have proved elusive, others contribute positively to today's agriculture. Research continues to be necessary and needs to be reported and disseminated to a wide audience.These proceedings contain the reviewed papers from the 7th European Conference on Precision Agriculture. The papers reflect the wide range of disciplines that impinge upon precision agriculture including remote sensing, plant disease and weed detection, yield monitoring, soil sensing, geo statistics and path planning, regional and crop modelling, cooperation and guidance of robots, precision application, ICT in precision agriculture, future farming and European relevance for precision agriculture.The broad range of research topics reported is a valuable resource for researchers, advisors, teachers and professionals in agriculture.Also note that the reviewed papers from the 4th European Conference on Precision Livestock Farming are presented in a companion publication.Wild blueberries are fragile when harvested, and mechanical sensing devices can harm the berries and reduce their quality and marketability. In addition, load cells are impractical to ... A low-cost yield mapping system may be possible with the addition of photographic yield sensors on blueberry harvesters, estimating fruit yield on the ground just ahead of harvesting. Several studies have concentrated onanbsp;...
