Understanding Yield Monitoring: Quantifying Precision Farming

Yield monitors assist grain producers to analyze the effects of weather, soil properties, and management on grain production. Yield monitors act as the first stride for those who want to begin practicing site specific crop management or precision agriculture. The efficiency of these devices depends on appropriate installation, calibration, and operation. Thus, it is important […]

OADA catering to big data in Precision Farming

Conventionally, Unmanned Aerial vehicles (UAVs) have been used for remote sensing and surveillance by the military, though off late they are increasingly finding applications in the field of agriculture as well. Drones are being used to collect on-field data for varied purpose such as identifying potential yield limiting factors, insects affecting the crop and issues […]
