Technology has tremendous implications for Extension agents working with producers, agribusinesses, and youth. Four southern crops, including cotton, com, grain sorghum, and peanuts, were evaluated under current agricultural management practices and precision farming technology. Yield, profit, and fertilizer application levels are compared across the two management practices. Field characteristics for the most profitable locations are outlined as a reference for producers in determining whether they would likely be good candidates for this technology. Results are commodity specific and suggest maximum bounds on investment levels that would be profitable to producers.
