Precision-farming technologies are used to identify and measure within-field variability and its causes, prescribe site-specific input applications that match varying crop and soil needs, and apply the inputs as prescribed. Reduction of input levels, increased efficiency of inputs, and proper timing of the inputs can reduce costs as well as increase yields and returns.
