For the testing of variable input distribution equipment such as variable rate seeders or fertilizer spreaders, the plots of the Rabanales Experimental Farm will be available. Measuring the variability in different plots and sampling crop production with yield monitors. As complementary information, the plots will be monitored by satellite. With this data set, zoning and crop prescription maps can be generated that will allow the evaluation and testing of the operation of this precision agriculture equipment. The work to be carried out will be under various ISO regulations.
