Precision Agriculture

Global Positioning Systems (GPS)

Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) provide farmers with the capabilities to manage field variability on a site-specific basis. GPS is a constellation of 24 satellites orbiting 12,660 miles above the Earth that is used for determining latitude and longitude (position). When installed on agriculture equipment, a GPS receiver provides position information for soil sampling, crop scouting, applying inputs, planting, harvesting and other applications. A GPS receiver allows farmers to continually return to the same location in a field.
