In this article we explain how we apply precision agriculture techniques to improve sustainability and efficiency, to make a farmer aware of exactly which crops have too much or too little of something. WUR researcher Corné Kempenaar explain in this text and video how the NPEC FieldExplorer will be used for this purpose. The article is part of an online magazine; KennisOnline (‘KnowledgeOnline’) showcases research projects at Wageningen University & Research (WUR) that are co-funded by the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality.
