UNL Extension Circulars:
EC702, Applications of Remote Sensing in Site-Specific Management: Precision Agriculture*
Remote sensing is another tool the precision agriculture specialist uses to collect data. This 5-page, full-color circular talks about aerial, satellite, imagery data sources, and other elements.
EC157, Untangling the GPA Data String*
This 4-page, full-color circular illustrates a way to convert GPS receiver output into linear units for georeferenced data analysis.
EC705, Site-Specific Management of Soil pH (FAQ)*
Soil pH is a precision agriculture practice that can provide positive economic and environmental impacts. Questions related to the meaning of soil pH, lime requirement and quality of data used to prescribe site-specific management of soil pH are addressed in this 6-page, full-color circular.
EC178, On-The-Go Vehicle Soil Sensors*
Sensors can measure a variety of essential soil properties. These sensors can be used to control variable rate application equipment in real-time or in conjunction with a Global Posititioning System to generate field maps of particular soil properties. This 4-page, full-color publication is one in a series on precision agriculture and reviews the most promising soil sensor approaches and presents an overview of some.
EC163, Site-Specific Nitrogen Management for Irrigated Corn*
This 7-page, full-color circular describes several approaches to site-specific nitrogen management including data collection, soil sampling and nitrogen recommendations as well as a history and economic analysis of the practice.
