  • Precision Agriculture Minor

    Hours: 15 credits, completed with minimum grades of C

    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, these data can help make effective management decisions.

    For more information, refer to Agricultural and Biological Engineering.
