Error Sources Affecting Variable Rate Application of Nitrogen Fertilizer

Error Sources Affecting Variable Rate Application of Nitrogen Fertilizer The accuracy and interaction among global positioning system (GPS) horizontal accuracy, differential GPS (DGPS) sampling frequencies and machine delay times of a hypothetical variable rate applicator for nitrogen (N) fertilizer application based on an application map in Florida citrus were studied. Parameters studied included: five GPS horizontal accuracy levels, two levels of DGPS horizontal accuracy, two DGPS sampling frequencies and two machine delay times. Two integrated models were developed which documented the effects of the parameters. Machine delay time was the most important factor and GPS horizontal accuracy was the second most important. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Precision Agriculture Springer Journals

Abstract

The accuracy and interaction among global positioning system (GPS) horizontal accuracy, differential GPS (DGPS) sampling frequencies and machine delay times of a hypothetical variable rate applicator for nitrogen (N) fertilizer application based on an application map in Florida citrus were studied. Parameters studied included: five GPS horizontal accuracy levels, two levels of DGPS horizontal accuracy, two DGPS sampling frequencies and two machine delay times. Two integrated models were developed which documented the effects of the parameters. Machine delay time was the most important factor and GPS horizontal accuracy was the second most important.
