Precision Agriculture Research To Increase Combine Efficiency
The soybean harvest takes place every year during a short time period. Harvesting combines are expensive, and as a result, farmers have a strong incentive to boost their efficiency as much as possible.
The latest issue of Discovery Magazine, a University of Arkansas College of Ag journal, writes about a research initiative that studied combine efficiency on three local soybean farms. Their research indicates that the largest factor in increased efficiency was the use of geo-referencing a field, which boosts precision.
