2023 Abstract - ON FARM PRECISION EXPERIMENTATION AND ITS CONNECTION WITH CROP MANAGEMENT: Practitioners of Precision Agriculture technologies often conduct large plots, long strips experiment on their farms due to the easy yield monitoring capabilities of harvesters to compare treatments. Larger experiments are more reliable than small plot in research station, since they are less prone to human error. The objective of this talk is to present how farmers that own and are equipped with yield monitors and variable rate applicators can get most of the data collected if they design a spatial design to evaluate treatments. We will show some preliminary results of an entire farm seed rate study using variable rate technologies to set up on farm precision experimentation without interference in the operational farm routine.
