Precision farming

    Project Details

    Description

    This project analyses the impact of precision farming (PF) practices in Denmark by using technology assessment methods. The project involves an integrated application of participatory impact analysis and cost-benefit analysis of various PF-practices in cereals. Precision farming implies that the use of nutrients, lime and pesticides are used site-specifically according to the site-specific needs on the field by using the GPS-system for positioning on the field. The decison support systems for conducting site-specific application is based on soil maps, yield maps, information about nitrogen-status (with remote sensing) and weed maps (weed detection).
