Comments on sustainability

Can reduce (or make more effective) the treatments and other tasks on farm, and then redece GHG. It can avoid unnecessary treatments or at least a more efficient use of agrochemicals that favour biodiversity. Can reduce costs of treatments and farming inputs. Can entail less workload (or more efficiency). Technical assessment necessary
