Abstract

Site-specific crop management is concerned with adapting management to
the variation of the crop-growing environment. For most applications and
research (see Chapters 4 and 12, for example) the focus has been on the
spatial variation of the crop-growing environment, for example different soil
types may be present across a field. Each of these soil types may have different
nutrient- and water-holding capacities, different yield expectations and therefore
require different agronomic inputs. However, variation in time can be
equally important for properties such as soil moisture, crop nutrient status
and soil available nutrients.
