This course focuses on agricultural equipment that is commonly used in conjunction with GPS technology. Planters, combines, fertilizer application equipment and sprayer application equipment are commonly equipped with GPS equipment to control and record operational parameters. These parameters focus around the equipment's geographic location and can be recorded simultaneously with the volume of product applied and weather information (wind, temperature, humidity, etc.). The management of this equipment and the GPS technologies used to control and record this information are the focus of the course.
