The modern development of recent years has not left agriculture untouched either. The advent and introduction of precision technology have accelerated events further. Slowly, even the smallest farms are trying to move from the methods they have become accustomed to as much as possible, using precision technology to make their operations more efficient and profitable, as those who lag behind will lag behind and will not be sufficiently competitive with other producers. Precision development covers all areas, we have the opportunity to apply new knowledge and technologies in sowing, irrigation, plant protection, harvesting, and last but not least, nutrient replenishment and even other areas. This development is a major task and very topical for smaller producers in rural areas, as they need to develop and create the necessary financial resources, which in many cases can only be achieved in the form of subsidies from different locations. This is all the more true for horticultural crops, since, for example, in contrast to the arable crop production, producers have much higher energy and capital requirements to achieve the same level of profit. In the course of the study, we examined the opinion of the producers supported by the Southern Horticultural Cooperatives – Délalföldi Kertészek Szövetkezete (DélKerTÉSZ) - whether the Agro Sense decision support precision tool placed to them had improved their production conditions and made their production more profitable due to the use of the tool.
