The main objective of the course is to present the precision farming conception, the related technical and practical problems, as well as issues concerning Geographical Information Systems to the extent that is necessary to acquire the ability for its effective use.

Pełny opis:

Lectures (20 hrs):

1. The concept of precision farming. Characteristics of the GNSS systems. Geographical Information Systems.

2. Yield monitoring systems for different crops. Software for processing the yield data. Spatial and temporal trends in yield maps.

3. Techniques for mapping variability of soil chemical and physical properties.

4. Sensing for crop protection. Weed and disease detection.

5. Strategies for spatially variable nitrogen application.

6. Methods and software for preparing the application maps for spatially variable rate treatments.

7. Equipment technologies for specific site management (SSM) in tillage, fertilization, sowing, plant protection and irrigation.

8. Guidance systems in precision farming.

9. Economic and environmental effects of precision farming. Meeting traceability requirements and environmental targets.

10. Management strategies and practices for precision agriculture operations. Farm monitoring systems based on a client-server technology.

Classes (10 hrs):

Efekty uczenia się:

Students make characteristics of the GNSS and precision farming systems, they identify the areas of crop production where the PF is used.

They are acquainted with the hardware and software by means of which the precision farming is carried out.

Students acquire skill of making and interpreting the maps of spatial distribution of the yield as well as the relevant soil and canopy properties in order to optimize mineral fertilization, spraying, sowing and irrigation.

Students are aware of the fact that precision farming technologies seem to be the proper way ensuring sustainable development in crop production.
