Know the Demographic Trends: The Findings of a Three-Year Survey on Nitrogen Management and Precision Agriculture Adoption in Southern Idaho
Application of Precision Agriculture (PA) methodologies, such as site-specific nutrient management and crop sensors, has the potential to substantially improve fertilizer use efficiency. Yet some Idaho farmers are reluctant to use PA technologies. In order to encourage its adoption, agricultural educators and other stakeholders need to understand the current situation regarding agricultural technologies and N management methods, especially growers’ attitudes toward them. This three-year study intends to fill in some of these gaps.
