Description

Prescription farming as used in the context of this paper will be defined thusly: The site specific management of variable cropping inputs so as to achieve maximal economic return while minimizing degradation of the environment. Obviously many factors must be integrated into a management plan to achieve such a worthwhile goal. Proper equipment, skills, management ability, and timing are all crucially important. Perhaps the most important factor, and the one which is the most limiting currently, is the ability to collect and organize detailed information about the site in question.

Prescription Farming Based on Soil Property Sensors

Prescription farming as used in the context of this paper will be defined thusly: The site specific management of variable cropping inputs so as to achieve maximal economic return while minimizing degradation of the environment. Obviously many factors must be integrated into a management plan to achieve such a worthwhile goal. Proper equipment, skills, management ability, and timing are all crucially important. Perhaps the most important factor, and the one which is the most limiting currently, is the ability to collect and organize detailed information about the site in question.
