The Port Lincoln TimesDown under in Australia precision agriculture is making a difference when it comes to applying fertilizer. This is from a story in the Port Lincoln Times. The story focuses on a report by Rabobank senior analyst Ingrid Richardson.

Ms Richardson said farmers would have to improve their productivity, but reduce costs – the ‘holy grail’ of farming.

“The precision application of fertiliser is becoming increasingly common across all sectors of agriculture as producers seek to maximise yields through better techniques rather than higher input application rates,” she said.
