Information on the introduction and development of technology of precision farming on the example of potatoes in the field experience of the Center of Precision Agriculture of the RSAU – MTAA named after K.A. Timiryazev is given. It has been established that, when compared with the traditional technology, potatoes were planted and combed on shoots using GPS satellite navigation equipment, accurate, better and more qualitatively. The advantage of the exact technology manifested itself in obtaining higher yields, which exceeded the traditional technology, on average over the years of research, by 0.8 t/ha, while the dump processing was ahead of the minimum by exact technology by 2.3 t/ha, and by the traditional 3.4 t/ha.

Keywords: exact (coordinate) farming, potatoes, cultivation technology, tillage reception, autopilot, marker, aisles, ridge formation, effective area, yield.
