An experiential lecture, discussion and field laboratory course for graduating seniors majoring in Agronomy. Analysis of multi-layer digital georeferenced crop data is used to inform the development and evaluation of zone-specific agronomic input prescriptions. Variables include factors affecting soil productivity, soil fertility and N management (including emerging sensor and crop modeling technologies). Prescriptions for variable crop genetics and seeding rates are also discussed. Sound agronomic use of emerging technologies such as real time soil moisture, organic matter, temperature and moisture sensing to affect variable seeding depth, rate and precision are included. May be used in combination with AGRY 49800 to meet the Agronomy undergraduate capstone requirement; will also meet the GIS/GPS requirement in Agronomy plans of study.

Course AGRY 48500 from Purdue University - West Lafayette.

Prerequisites: AGR 25500 and AGR 37500
