This course will investigate the causes of variability in agriculture production and modern techniques for improving yields. Precision agriculture enables the farmer to accurately use resources at the correct location and time to optimise the management of crops. Precision agriculture relies on technology to monitor the crops and GPS tracking to guide equipment to the required location to complete the task. This course will explore how these technologies can be utilised in the pursuit of improving crop production.
