"Precision Mapping: does it tell us anything we don’t already know?” explored the application of precision mapping techniques in potato production systems in South Australia. It confirmed that soil and crop sensing technologies can be used to inform: the strategic application of fertilisers and soil amendments; decisions about drainage alignment; and, can provide insight to irrigation performance, crop stress and yield forecasts.    

The project was funded by the South Australian Potato Industry Trust, and the South East and SA Murray Darling Basin Natural Resource Management Boards.
