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).
