The results from the analyses are the base for working out prescription maps that help farmers boost the efficiency and the end result. This could be done by:
- Averaging the advisable rate of application for every plot and manually adjusting the spreader according to this rate. That is suitable for spreaders that do not have controllers for variable rate application
- Variable Rate Application via prescription maps. This is applicable for spreaders with controllers which change the rate of fertilizer application on the go. That is what we call precision agriculture. Prescription maps can be loaded on the rugged mobile computer Trimble Nomad, which is connected to the controller and operates in order to adjust the rate ot application according to the GPS position of the machine.
