Data management and decision making: when Precision Agriculture puts us in trouble
MetadataShow full item record
The use of sensors in Precision Agriculture together with the trend of increasing spatial and temporal sampling resolutions, lead to the generation of huge amounts of data. The appropriate management of such data sets to turn them into useful information to be used in the decision making process is
quite a challenge. This is addressed in Stage 3 of the Precision Agriculture cycle we presented in the first Precision Ag Corner (New Ag International 64 in Nov-Dec 2016). In this issue, we describe how to handle and use the gathered data to make more informed agronomic management decisions. Undoubtedly, this is the moment of truth: when PA puts us in trouble and we have to make an agronomic decision! New Ag International has partnered with the Research Group on AgroICT & Precision Agriculture (GRAP) of the University of Lleida-Agrotecnio Center in Catalonia, Spain. In every issue of the magazine Jaume Arnó, José A. Martínez-Casasnovas and Alexandre Escolà, with our Editorial Team, put together an editorial whose ambition is to help the various stakeholders bridge the gap between datanomics and commercial farming!

Use of farmer knowledge in the delineation of potential management zones in precision agriculture: a case study in maize (Zea mays L.) Martínez Casasnovas, José Antonio; Escolà i Agustí, Alexandre; Arnó Satorra, Jaume (MDPI, 2018-06-13)One of the fields of research in precision agriculture (PA) is the delineation of potential management zones (PMZs, also known as site-specific management zones, or simply management zones). To delineate PMZs, cluster ...
Mapping vineyard leaf area using mobile terrestrial laser scanners: should rows be scanned on-the-go or discontinuosly sampled? Moral Martínez, Ignacio del; Rosell Polo, Joan Ramon; Company Mesa, Joaquim; Sanz Cortiella, Ricardo; Escolà i Agustí, Alexandre; Masip Vilalta, Joan; Martínez Casasnovas, José Antonio; Arnó Satorra, Jaume (Molecular Diversity Preservation International, 2016-01-19)The leaf area index (LAI) is defined as the one-side leaf area per unit ground area, and is probably the most widely used index to characterize grapevine vigor. However, LAI varies spatially within vineyard plots. Mapping ...
