Currently, the use of GPS, is widespread both in conventional agriculture and precision agriculture, mostly for monitoring processes, for mapping fertilizing treatments for specific parts in a land, from which applications are performed in varying doses. It is also used for crop monitoring to detect incidences of weeds, pest problems or nutrient deficiencies, so that the farmer can accurately apply the treatment product, and they are also used to generate yield maps. Precision agriculture GPS systems are also used to navigate and guide the tractor almost automatically .

This project carried out in the Cluster FEMAC, responds to the need to know the exact amount of product applied in the field using Global Positioning.
