Farmland management in the agricultural sector involves a number of planning and decision-making responsibilities, such as providing farmers with information, selecting crops, and maintaining farmers' land. Agriculture holds significant importance in the development and progress of a country. Challenges in the agriculture sector constantly limit a country's progress. The answer to addressing these difficulties is to improve traditional farmland management and adopt precision agriculture approaches. To address this challenge, a precision agriculture framework for farmland management is proposed. The Precision FarmTrac framework was designed based on interviews with the Department of Agriculture office, as well as data provided from document analysis and observations. The proposed framework shall assist the Department of Agriculture in monitoring farmers' farmland management. The proposed framework shall be well-suited to effectively oversee and monitor farmers' farmland, enhancing traditional land management practices, monitoring crop growth, and ensuring equitable distribution of benefits among farmers and stakeholders. As a result, the Precision FarmTrac framework becomes an essential tool for transforming the future of agriculture by increasing productivity, and maintaining the sustainable development of farmland resources. This framework can be used by the department of agriculture to facilitate the dissemination of information to various agricultural sectors and farmers, allowing for more efficient and effective farmer’s and farmland monitoring.
