Description

Identifying the variability within a field and managing inputs to account for this variability is one of the underlying principles of precision agriculture. Although most agronomists recognize that weed populations within a field usually are highly variable, there has been relatively little effort to incorporate knowledge regarding weed populations into weed management plans. This paper will provide an introduction to the spatial characteristics of weed populations and how we might utilize this information to enhance weed management programs.

Spatial Weed Distribution: Can It Be Used to Improve Weed Management

Identifying the variability within a field and managing inputs to account for this variability is one of the underlying principles of precision agriculture.
