EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Executing variable rate fertilization and seeding
What problem does the tool address?:The condition for efficient production is not always given. Often the amount of seed and fertilizer is not optimal and does not ensure profitability, sustainability and protection of the environment.
What solution does the tool offer?:Variable rate fertilization and seeding, with proper planning and technique, can increase yields while reducing environmental impact. Through precision agriculture, both cost savings and easier seeding are possible.
