Abstract: In a precision farming research project financed by the Belgian Ministry of Small Trade and Agriculture, the methods of precision agriculture are tested on grain fields with a view of implementation of precision agriculture methods in Belgian field agriculture. The project encompasses methods for automatic information gathering on soil and crop and analysis of this data for management of within-field variability. Automatic information capturing is combined with traditional data sources of soil sample analysis and crop observations. The measurements and part of the results on one particular field in Sauveniere are presented here. Five nitrogen management strategies were compared, but the resulting differences in nitrogen dose were small and did not lead to significantly different yield results. The yield results were correlated to topography-related variations in soil texture and chemical components and to crop reflectance measurements in May. (C) 2003 Silsoe Research Institute.
