Conduct investigations into cropping systems using corn,soybeans, and small grains.
Present research activities involve the use of global positioning systems (GPS) and geographic information systems(GIS) in managing crop production in North Carolina. Yield mapping, soil grid sampling, and variable rate application of nutrients, seed, and pesticides are being tested using farm cooperators.
Provide information to North Carolina farmers on corn, soybean,and wheat production. Conduct training on using GPS, GIS, and variable rate technologies on the farm.
