Description

Research over the past decade has shown that precision farming technologies offer great potential to increase the profitability of com production in Iowa. Producers who have invested in these technologies, however, are still trying to learn how to capture some of these profits. Experience clearly indicates that producers cannot increase their profits by using the new technologies merely to apply old management guidelines more precisely. Mounting evidence suggests that the great potential of precision farming technologies is realized only when the new technologies are used to develop better guidelines for management.
