Abstract

This document serves to share our techniques for managing the analysis of site-specific precision agriculture data for the purposes of analyzing field-scale on-farm trial experiments. The content of this document is the culmination of over a decade of on-farm trial and spatial analysis experience which continually expands. Working with precision agriculture data can be very frustrating even for those versed in GIS and programming. This protocol was written to assist other analysts of precision agriculture data to be able to follow our steps in an effort to reduce their frustration by making available techniques that have worked for us.
