Precision farming technology is allowing Yorkshire grower Neil Welburn and his son Chris to take the guesswork out on nitrogen applications and push up their crop yields. A tractor-mounted Isaria crop sensor combines real-time measurements with field-history data and continually alters nitrogen rates according to plant needs as it travels through the crops. The system has helped Mr Welburn boost yields and produce more even and easier to manage crops over the past two years, despite the tremendous variability in […]
