  • See & Spray: The Next Generation of Weed Control

    Resource Magazine, Vol. 24, No. 4, Page 4

    July/August 2017

    Precision agriculture has been steadily narrowing the focus of farm management—from region to field to individual plants. Each step has required technical breakthroughs and new products that add technology to farm machinery and, more importantly, profit to farm operations. Yield monitors, GPS-based autosteer, variable-rate application controllers, and electronic seed metering are becoming standard equipment, and that’s just the beginning.

  • Precision Irrigation for Water Savings

    Resource Magazine, Vol. 24, No. 4, Page 6

    July/August 2017

    Water is one of the world’s most precious resources. Yet with increasing urban demand and a world population expected to reach 9 billion by 2050, water is becoming increasingly scarce. While irrigated agriculture is a major consumer of freshwater supplies, it is also crucial for supporting the growing population. As a result, farmers are being forced to implement better irrigation management practices, and they are turning to precision agriculture to accomplish this.

  • Whole-Orchard Recycling Can Sequester Carbon and Improve Soil Fertility

    Resource Magazine, Vol. 24, No. 4, Page 8

    July/August 2017

    Before air quality restrictions were implemented, orchard removal meant pushing trees over and burning them. More recently, old orchards were uprooted and ground with a tub grinder or wood chipper, and the woody debris was hauled to a co-generation plant, which burned the debris to generate electricity. A small percentage of the wood waste was also sold for use as mulch. However, many biomass co-generation plants have closed throughout California, and the remaining plants have reduced the amount of wood debris they will accept and reduced the price they will
    pay.
