With ever-increasing pressures on world agriculture in both economic and environmental terms, application of the concept of precision agriculture is one way of enabling farmers and producers to cope. 'Doing arable agriculture and horticulture more precisely' means that the use of inputs is optimised, crop yield and quality are maximised and leakage of agro-chemicals and fertilisers to the environment is minimised.These Proceedings contain peer-reviewed papers presented at the 5th European Conference on Precision Agriculture, a biennial series of conferences initiated by John V Stafford in Warwick, UK in 1997. The papers reflect the wide range of disciplines that impinge on precision agriculture - technology, crop science, soil science, agronomy, information technology, decision support, remote sensing and others.The wide range of research topics reported will be a valuable resource for researchers, advisors, teachers and professionals in agriculture long after the conference has finished.As a backup, we maintain a manual recording system in the tractor. ... We require the operators to record the date seeded, their name and to verify that the paddock has received the planned rates (or the rates applied in the event that they have been required to ...
