The Applied Precision Crop Production course will examine the application of precision technologies in the crop management process and some of the associated software which allows for their implementation.
Precision crop production is the application of precision farming technologies to manage spatial and temporal variability for the purpose of improving crop performance and environmental quality. Precision farming has become established due to advances in technology which enable accurate geo-referencing, real-time data acquisition, sensing, telematics and variable rate application of inputs.
The course should allow for stand-alone delivery but would benefit if used along with the course Precision Farming Technology.
Please note that as Applied Precision Crop Production is not a core module within Harper Adams University’s postgraduate program this module will only run if there are 5 or more confirmed enrolments by Monday 6th May 2019.
13-17 May 2019
