Subproject 3a: Geo-information applications

In this project the use of geo-information of soils and crops for precision farming and variable rate application (VRA) technology is investigated. The focus is on integration of sensor data using decision support systems (DSS) and advanced technology (ICT and hardware). Specific questions that will be addressed are: what components are needed to achieve cost-effective VRA of soil pesticides and fertilizers, how accurate are the available geo-data and how do prototypes of this technology perform? Furthermore, better use of weather information in VRA technology will be explored and what advice-Apps can be developed with existing geo-data.
