    As a result, it is shown that both food production and resource efficiency can be maximized, without waste or damage to the environment, such as can occur from excessive fertilizer or pesticide applications. The combining of the GIS, GPS, and variable-rate equipment technologies provided growers the opportunity to display maps and apply variable-rate treatments. GNSS helps farmers overcome these limitations. The purpose of this chapter is to help describe sources of variability typically found in crop production systems.

Precision-farming guide for agriculturists book

The technologies covered include yield monitors and remote sensing, and the key agronomic principles addressed are the optimal delivery of fertilizers, water and pesticides to crops only when and where these are required. The authors of necessity describe some technicalities about PA, but the overall aim is to introduce readers who are unfamiliar with PA to this very broad subject and to demonstrate the potential impact of PA on the environment and economy.

Abstract Chapter Purpose In precision farming, variability is the measure of dissimilarity or difference in soil, crops, management, pests, varieties, yields, elevation, soil water and soil nutrients in space and time across a field.

Included are explanations of how weather and soil interact to create variability. The first step in managing variability is understanding the root causes and extent.

Geographic Information Systems has been around since the s but was a well-kept secret, used mainly by large corporations or research institutions. It did not become a mainstream technology until the Global Positioning System GPS became available in the early s.

Download Precision agriculture PA involves the application of technologies and agronomic principles to manage spatial and temporal variation associated with all aspects of agricultural production in order to improve crop precision-farming guide for agriculturists book and environmental quality.

The book shows how farmers can place sustainability of the environment at the centre of their operations and that this is improved with the application of PA. The combining of the GIS, GPS, and variable-rate equipment technologies provided growers the opportunity to display maps and apply variable-rate treatments.

Therefore, key goals in precision farming is the ability to identify spatial and temporal variability and then tailor the appropriate management to that variability. By managing for variability with precision farming, farmers can increase profitability and improve environmental services.

In this chapter, readers are provided with a basic description of how GNSS technology works, the fundamental operating principles, common sources of error, and how different levels of accuracy are achieved through differential corrections.

These are illustrated with case studies on sampling and mapping, biofuels from sugar cane and maize, paddy rice cultivation, and cotton production. Over the years, many different positioning technologies have been developed including placing mechanical furrow followers on vehicles, using dead reckoning, burying cables across a field, and placing radio frequency transponders at various locations around a field Heraud and Lange, GNSS helps farmers overcome these limitations.

The purpose of this chapter is to help describe sources of variability typically found in crop production systems. This book discusses in detail: types of positioning systems, from land-based to global positioning systems to geo-stationary satellite systems; yield monitoring systems; mapping, soil sampling, soil testing; and new technologies such as The Precision Farming Guide for Agriculturists is an overview of site-specific farming and its many varied systems and applications.

This book also closely studies important considerations that every agriculturist needs to examine, beginning with whether site-specific farming is for you. As a result, it is shown that both food production and resource efficiency can be maximized, without waste or damage to the environment, such as can occur from excessive fertilizer or pesticide applications.

The range of topics described includes sampling and mapping, weed and pest control, proximal and remote sensing, spatio-temporal analysis for improving management, management zones and water management. It then explores system development and integration, economic considerations, and environmental considerations.

This book discusses in detail: types of positioning systems, from land-based to global positioning systems to geo-stationary satellite systems; yield monitoring systems; mapping, soil sampling, soil testing; and new technologies such as remote sensing, variable rate technology, and geographic information systems.

The focus of this book is to introduce a non-specialist audience to the the role of PA in food security, environmental protection, and sustainable use of natural resources, as well as its economic benefits.

It includes descriptions and examples of both spatial and temporal variability, and contrasts biotic versus abiotic factors.

Variability in crop production fields also is influenced by management, such as through increased erosion, compaction, rotations, and uneven application of fertilizer, lime, manure and irrigation. However, many of these technologies lacked the accuracy necessary for common field applications, and were impractical because they required either extensive installation of permanent equipment or systematic transfer of stationary equipment from one field to another.

If little variability exists, the use of variable rate technology will have a minimal ability to improve yields. If variability is high, then the opposite is true.
