Precision Agriculture BMP Technology Transfer

Thirty-Six producers located in eight counties agreed to assist the Foundation with this project.  They enrolled a minimum of 220 acres of their operations for four crop years of detailed soils, input application, and yield data collection.  This was a total of 9998 acres.   Each participant received an incentive payment to help cover the costs of purchasing grid soil sampling, variable rate and global positioning equipment.  The premise was that by precisely applying the fertilizer inputs the potential for pollution would be reduced.
