FROM LEFT, cousins Rob and Brandon Karcher, and their precision ag consultant Tim Sharp, say variable-rate application is a system, not a set of single practices.

Precision ag is a system, not single practices.

The key to making variable-rate applications work begins with acquiring reliable information from the field.

For the Karcher family farm, variable-rate application of inputs means keeping up with almost constant change in software, hardware, GPS and equipment. But the need for basic agronomy knowledge is always the same.
