Precision Agriculture
Hours: 15 credits, all completed with grades of C or better

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).
