2024 Abstract - PRECISION AGRICULTURE TECHNOLOGY AND DATA APPLICATIONS TO IMPROVE COTTON PRODUCTION AND PROFITABILITY IN THE SOUTHEASTERN US: With the availability of advanced technology and data solutions in agriculture today, precision application and management of crop inputs is becoming important to improve yield and overall profitability in cotton production. The rising cost of crop inputs – seed, fertilizer and chemicals – and the demand to strength environmental sustainability in recent years have emphasized the need to explore and utilize some of the digital technologies along with remotely-sensed crop and machine data to improve the efficiency of these crop inputs. The technology and information derived from these systems enable precise and efficient application of crop inputs to address spatial and temporal variability within the cotton fields. This session will provide various examples of the utilization of different agricultural technologies to support precision and data-driven applications related to planting, nutrient management, pesticide applications and irrigation in cotton.
