Precision in crop farming : site specific concepts and sensing methods : applications and results

Author: Hermann J Heege
Publisher: Dordrecht : Springer, 2013.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
High yields and environmental control in crop farming call for precise adaptations to local growing conditions. Treating large fields in a uniform way by high capacity machinery cannot be regarded as a sustainable method for many situations. Because differences existing within single fields must be considered. The transition from former field work carried out manually or by small implements to present-day  Read more...

Treating large fields in a uniform way by high capacity machinery cannot be regarded as a sustainable method for many situations. Because differences existing within single fields must be considered. The transition from former field work carried out manually or by small implements to present-day high-capacity machinery caused that the farmers lost the immediate and close contact with soils and crops. However, modern sensing and controlling technology can make up for this deficit.--[Source inconnue]." ;
