Thesis Topic/Title:
Energy Savings by Adopting Precision Agriculture


Energy input in agriculture has increased significantly around the world. Precision agriculture involves knowledge-based technical management systems to optimize application of fertilizer, chemicals, seeds, and irrigation resources to reduce input costs and to enhance crop yield while simultaneously reducing harmful environmental impacts. This study will evaluate the opportunities of fuel and labor savings resulting from adoption of precision agricultural technology by using GPS guidance and/or autosteering systems.
