Precision Agriculture

College of Agricultural and Life Sciences

The precision agriculture minor is a multidisciplinary minor. Students use satellite imagery, aerial photography, field sensors and the Global Positioning System to acquire information about field conditions. This information is organized and analyzed using a digital mapping system called Geographical Information System. Once analyzed, this data can help make effective management decisions (refer to Agricultural and Biological Engineering).

The minor requires 15 credit hours from the following categories:
