ISHS Acta Horticulturae 607: IX International Symposium on Timing of Field Production in Vegetable Crops

POTENTIAL OF THE USE OF PRECISION AGRICULTURE CONCEPTS FOR VEGETABLE CROPS

Author:   L.A. Balastreire
Keywords:   precision agriculture, vegetable crops, yield mapping
Abstract:
The potential use of precision farming concepts for vegetable crops is discussed, particularly those for mapping soil and crop attibutes, yield mapping and site specific management of inputs. A few examples are discussed for crops other than vegetables such as grains, orange, and coffee. One application example is discussed for tomatoes. Like other crops where these concepts have been used, it is expected that the main advantages of using these concepts are increased productivity, lower costs, less pollution, and improved management due to the site specific aspect when very small plots can be treated individually in terms of their needs for seed, fertilizers, organic matter, and chemical products.
