Precision Agriculture at The Ohio State University
The focus of the precision agriculture program has been to develop precision nutrient management strategies and technologies to improve efficiency of fertilizer placement, enable on-farm evaluation, automate machine functionality, enhance placement of pesticides and seed, and to develop analytical tools for digital agriculture. Researchers are also designing precision seeding tools to improve depth control for varying field conditions and identifying the value proposition of both precision agriculture technology and farm data for individual growers.
