FACTORS AFFECTING PRECISION AGRICULTURE ADOPTION: A SYSTEMATIC LITTERATURE REVIEW
The aim of this paper is to present the main advances in the adoption of precision agriculture
technologies. While we are witnessing the emergence of a literature dedicated to the adoption of new
technologies, this theme still suffers from a lack of consensus on its conceptualization. Based on the
prisma statement method (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyzes),
the objective is to carry out a review of the systemic literature in order to identify the main factors
of adoption of the technologies of precision agriculture over the past ten years. The results show
that individual factors are the most empirically identified as determining factors in the adoption of
precision agriculture technologies. That said, the farmer is at the center of the adoption decision.
Perceived utility is the factor most identified in the literature as the determinant of adoption.
