(College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences)
The Department of Biological & Agricultural Engineering offers a minor in Precision Agriculture, the latest farming concept that optimizes fertilizer, pesticide and water use, while minimizing environmental concerns.
This minor acquaints students with recent developments and their applications to agriculture, in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Global Positioning Systems (GPS), Variable Rate Technologies (VRT), crop & soil sensors, and remote sensing. The minor prepares students for challenging positions in site-specific crop management as we enter the “information age” in agriculture.Minor Advisors. S.K. Upadhyaya, Bryan M.
