  • 1. Precision Agriculture in Arizona : A New Research and Extension Program Pedro Andrade-S á nchez Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Department Maricopa Agricultural Center, University of Arizona
  • 2. Modern technology for Precision Agriculture
  • 3. Presentation Outline
  • 4. Variable rate technology in Cotton Soil Electrical Survey. 20 ha field in Safford, AZ Veris sensor. Apparent Electrical Conductivity (EC a )
  • 5. VRT in Cotton. Prescription Mapping Soil texture prediction. 20 ha field in Safford, AZ Note: Preliminary tests at MAC show potential for salinity assessment
  • 6. Detection of subsoil compaction
  • 7. CIE i = 0.216 CI i + 2.601 d i - 0.176 CI i d i (R 2 = 0.973) CIE i *= 0.216*(2.0 MPa) + 2.601 d i - 0.176*(2.0 MPa) d i Mapped quantity: CIE i / CIE i * Algorithm for compaction assessment CIE i = Cone Index Equivalent (of the ith layer)
