Spring case study # 1

How to save money with fertilizer and herbicide applications by soil type

The maps below are created with a PF 3000 Monitor, a Raven 450 controller, Global Positioning (GPS) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Precision farm technology uses GPS and GIS to provide data that can help you apply fertilizers and chemicals by soil type prescriptions. Each map represents a different application of herbicide by soil type with the soil types being the first map. The cost difference by applying a flat full rate vs applying by soil type $22.85 for full rate &  $17.41 for vrt saving the producer $5.44/acre x 1000 acres would be a cost savings of $5440.00. There may be less yield drag also by doing this and there for improving revenues.
