Precision Ag technologies in on farm research…Assessing on-farm research trials using ag technologies has the potential to improve decision support at the farm level. We will discuss opportunities and challenges with using these technologies (e.g., variable rate application and yield monitors) for this purpose. Case studies will be presented to illustrate the need for proper study planning and successful data analysis.
