1 HGCA Ian Beecher-Jones Be Precise Facilitator Precision Agriculture – An overview

2 The uses of Precision Agriculture To help improve the profitability of the business To help improve timeliness and accuracy of operation To help improve the environmental impact of crop production

3 What does PF look like?

4 Joining it together

5 Investing in precision farming

6 How wide is this drill? The exact width

7 Investing in precision farming How much is it costing by not filling a full header?

8 Inaccuracy – how much is it costing?

27 The way satellites work

28 Correction signals

29 Spray controller

30 Fertiliser spreader control

31 The operator is the key

32 Targeting Agronomy Define and Quantify RemoveReduceManage Mapping and Sensing Remedial / Compensatory Treatments Variable Rate Inputs

33 Google – a good place to start

34 Yield mapping Too much detail

35 Yield mapping Too little detail

36 Yield mapping About right 1 2 3

37 Soil texture map Increasing conductivity Electrical Conductivity Profile: cm < 12 > 51

38 Soil texture map 1) = sandy loam over open clay subsoil 5) = med sandy clay loam over sandy clay 8) = heavy clay loam over clay 1 8 5

39 Establishment map

40 Seed rate map Tramline direction

41 Traditional methods

42 Managing canopy variation Image of poor establishment & good establishment Same Field on the same day

43 Satellite sensing Satellite imageGAI mapApplication map

44 Tractor mounted sensing

45 Canopy management HGCA: Auto N project

46 Managing nutrients

47 Replacing off takes Replacement map

48 Creating application map Yield / Offtake map + P Nutrient = ? Application map

49 Soil zoning

50 Cost:benefit

51 When to collect information Weed mapping Nutrient mapping Canopy mapping Yield mapping Nutrient mapping EC mapping Weed mapping EC mapping

52 Do you measure up?
