The main objective of the proposed project is to developed and implement an integrated monitor, support and application system for efficient and reduced utilisation of N-fertilisers. The system can be implemented on farm level, relies on improved management and site specific application. It can be realized through development and implementation of the following components :
- a system for monitoring the soil, the crop during growth and the crop yield to provide location specific data;
- an integrated support system that manages location specific data which is used together with existing models to determine optimal fertiliser rates;
- techniques for accurate location specific application of fertiliser, based on the rates determined by the support systems;
- evaluation and validation of the system through field experiments.
