Summary

Running a productive agriculture system has always been about having the right tools and the know-how to pursue optimization and efficiency. In the 21st century, the case can be made that the agriculturist's most important tool is not the cultivator, but the computer. While you still need to know how to adapt to the day-to-day challenges of land and climate, just as importantly, you need to know how to make reliable projections based on the manipulation of virtual variables.

Practice what you learn with real life examples and practical problem solving exercises

Agricultural Systems Management: Optimizing Efficiency and Performance teaches you how to create strategies using readily available off-the-shelf software, spreadsheets, and Internet material to meet the challenges commonly faced in agricultural production, processing, and management. The text provides the step-by-step direction necessary to allow you to obtain optimal results in field and livestock operations, machinery selection, and the planning/forecasting of crops and yield.
