Precision Agriculture

College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences

Precision agriculture is the latest farming concept that optimizes fertilizer, pesticide and water use, while minimizing environmental concerns. This minor acquaints students with recent developments and their applications to agriculture, in geographic information systems (GIS), global positioning systems (GPS), variable rate technologies (VRT), crop and soil sensors, and remote sensing. The minor prepares students for challenging positions in site-specific crop management as we enter the “information age” in agriculture.
