  • Precision Agriculture

    Credits: 15, 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. After being analyzed, these data can help make effective management decisions.
