I am interested to review the potential of precision farming (PF) in
reducing application of agrochemicals (pesticides in particular) in corn
and wheat. As the success of PF for reducing chemical inputs is based on
the knowledge of spatial heterogeneity (SH) of key factors (i.e.,
nutrients, pests, pathogens, weeds, natural enemies, etc.) I intend to
collect available information on spatial heterogeneity of these factors in
small as well as large fields.
Although avaialble data banks provide numerous information in general, I am
particularly interested in obtaining a list of key reviews (and if possible
a book), as well as key specialists on this field, and most important your
practical experience about patchiness of the specified weeds, slugs,
insects or plant pathogens in the above-mentioned crops (wheat and corn)
and the effects of cultivation techniques (e.g. no-till or minimum-till) on
spatial heterogeneity of these parameters. Therefore, I would appreciate it
very much if you could share your information and experience with me. Many
thanks in advance.
