The author discusses the use of the Courtyard Partnership's Intelligent Precision Farming (IPF) approach based on field zones at Ramsbury Estates in Wiltshire, England. According to the author, the season's wheat output is well up on that of 2006 before manager Duncan Lee adopted the IPF approach. He notes that the figure could have been higher, but the farm's pressure-based sprayer was unable to vary liquid nitrogen doses according to the zones.
