GPS satellite based navigation systems help to track where each piece ofequipment is located and also issues specific instructions for hoses to deliver the right amount offertilizer. In addition, this system helps the farmer to control and monitor the progress of theequipment remotely, for example, from their iPads. FieldScripts software application helpscollect and store data on such variables as the amount of sunlight, shade and soil nutrient level.Subsequently, this information is analyzed and integrated with data on climate predictions toprovide precise planting instructions, otherwise known as scripts, to the iPads connected to theplanting equipment. The data collected from the field is during a computerized planting work isanalyzed in order to determine how to increase crop yields further.2-14Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite based navigations systems support decision making byletting the equipment make decisions regarding the precise amount of fertilizer to apply whenplanting. Ideally if a farmer is applying fertilizer without the equipment, he or she will eitherover apply or under apply the fertilizer. There would be no way to determine the precise amountof fertili ...
