Towards Environmentally Conscious Precision Agriculture

After extensive research and testing, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore has adopted a new farm input management system on their research complex. It utilizes precision agriculture, yield monitoring, and remote sensing. A cost-benefit analysis showed that the conjunction of these three practices yielded an optimum management strategy to increase efficiency and reduce environmental effects. Researchers have since developed a set of procedures for farm operators to utilize these platforms for day-to-day activities.
