  • Precision Agriculture

    In the multidisciplinary precision agriculture minor, students use satellite imagery, aerial photography, field sensors, and the Global Positioning System to acquire information about field conditions. This information is organized and analyzed using a digital mapping system called Geographical Information System. After being analyzed, these data can help make effective management decisions.
