GRDC Precision Agriculture Manual

Author: GRDC

The Grains Research & Development Corporation Precision Agriculture Manual contains three documents:

1. PA manual - summarises technical detail about the science and technology of PA and how growers can apply it in practice. It includes spreadsheets that can be used by growers and advisers to see whether expenditure on PA is likely to be a sound investment. 

2. Undertaking your own on-farm experiments: how PA can help - explains how growers can use PA to lay out and harvest their own trials of new varieties or different rates of fertiliser or other inputs. 

3. Standards for Electro-magnetic Induction Mapping – proposes a set of standards for good practice in undertaking and reporting EM surveys.

The three documents are complementary and have numerous active links so that they can be jointly searched. The manual has been set up so that sections, pages, diagrams and images can be easily printed or saved for later modification and use in other PA education and training materials. Designed for growers and advisers who are familiar with the PA concepts and want more detailed information.
