Site-Specific Management Center

 College of Agriculture      Purdue University

Site-specific management, also called precision farming, prescription farming, and even variable rate application technology, is an old idea that has been given new life by the advent of technologies based on global positioning systems (GPS). These GPS based technologies are used to tailor soil and crop management to match conditions at every location in a field.

The SSMC mission is to develop and disseminate information about site-specific management methods that are profitable and practical for agricultural producers and those who supply inputs or process products.
