Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Engineering & Surveying

Farmers have long recognized that variability exists within individual production units. Traditional practices dictate that producers treat the entire area the same. With the advent of the Global Positioning System (GPS) it is now possible to vary inputs in accordance with localised conditions. Coupled with the capacity to monitor a variety of parameters, producers are now able to manage variability and optimise production. This course is designed to provide students with an introduction to the essential procedures and tools for collecting, organising, interpreting and presenting geographically referenced production data.
