Improving farmer confidence in targeted N management through automated sensing and decision support

Project dates: 01/06/2018 - Ongoing

The Future Farm Program aims to re-examine and improve the way in which soil and crop sensors are used to inform decisions about input management and to provide a way of automating the process from data acquisition, through analysis, to the formulation and implementation of decision options. The initial focus is on improving the efficiency and profitability of applied nitrogen (N). It will focus on the adaptive generation of site-specific management models through increased and improved use of in-season field monitored data (soil, crop, climatic), historic on-farm data, external public and private data and automation of decision rules in software that may potentially be linked to real-time application equipment.
