  • Advising with PA [-] Working from the soil up Michael Wells, finds that EM38 maps and elevation data, combined with targeted on ground soil sampling usually provide key clues to causes of yield variability. He specialises in gathering data and using GIS software to interrogate the data to build new layers to help...

  • Farmer Case Studies on the Economics of PA Technologies [-] Author: Dr Matt McCallum There has been a rapid adoption of Global Positioning Systems (GPS) guidance and autosteer in South Australia (SA) in the last 5 years. It is estimated that 30% of broadacre crops in SA are now sown and/or sprayed using GPS technology. However, other Precision...

  • The Sense in Real Time Sensing [-] While many Australian broadacre croppers have embraced autosteer as the entry point into precision agriculture (PA), UK farmers have focused their PA investments into variable rate technologies. Consequently, much can be learnt from the UK about the possibilities and pitfalls of adopting variable...
