Precision Agriculture

Precision Ag integrates geo-spatial sensors, electronics and geographic information systems (GIS) in farming applications for the analysis and development of new agricultural equipment and techniques.

Testing and performance evaluation of yield monitors, variable-rate application systems (aerial and ground) GPS suitability for aerial application, time-delay issues on variable application and definition of quality issues on variable-rate application are explored.
