UTIPA is about mutual sharing of views and experiences by a community of people related to precision agriculture - farmers, technology suppliers and researchers.

Its main contribution is the calculated index (UTIPA) which can be used for various comparisons of technologies.

"Everyone who contributes with their evaluation can benefit from the results!"


Objective and Significance
The goal of the User-Technological Index of Precision Agriculture ( UTIPA ) is to provide users, contractors and researchers with knowledge on the use of modern technologies in agriculture. Primarily, it is based on a point assessment of selected technologies (methods) of precision agriculture from the point of view of technological sophistication and usability for agricultural practice. It evaluates the principles of a given technology and not specific products and manufacturers.

The best level of technological advancement / sophistication of evaluated precision agriculture methods is achieved when they have verified functionality and operational reliability, user interface for use in agricultural practice and are mass / serial produced, ideally by several manufacturers. The worst level in this regard is when technologies are based only on theoretical foundations.

The highest level of usefulness for the practice of the evaluated methods is when farmers already have experience with its advantages in terms of economic efficiency, quality and quantity of production, organization and control of the production process, welfare, etc., as well as when the evaluated method has potential for solving operational shortcomings of the currently used technologies, therefore fulfilling innovation needs in a given manufacturing area. The worst level is when there is uncertainty of usability and potential benefits are not likely to significantly improve the production process.
