Data Aggregation for On-Farm Precision Experimentation

Every year new sources of information become available which allow the better characterization of the spatial variability of crop development and the factors influencing it. The use of on-farm precision experiments allows us to go a step further and characterize the spatial variability in the crop response to management practices. However, most of the data can only be collected after the decision has been already made. In order to harness the full power of precision agriculture, we need to develop better predictive tools. Ideally, these tools should combine all the information available in a clear and intuitive way to guide the decisions. Combining these sources of information is a challenging task since it involves contrastingly different spatial and temporal resolutions and levels of uncertainty. The presentation will cover some of the tools and techniques the Data Intensive Farm Management Project has been developing to address this challenge.
