Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

A GIS retrieves, stores, and analyzes spatial data and can be used to generate field and prescription maps for application of crop inputs. GIS data and maps are used for management decisions such as management zone creation, variable-rate application, planting decisions, and targeted soil sampling. Delineated management zones in GIS are used to site-specifically manage cropland according to measured field and/or crop variation. Farmers are able to use GIS to produce detailed harvest reports, determine trends from harvest to harvest, and compare production capabilities of different varieties and crop inputs. Agriculture GIS software can also serve as valuable accounting, record keeping, and decision support tools for farmers.
