Precision Conservation is planning and applying the right practices, in the right place, at the right time to maximize environmental benefits while minimizing economic investment.
Precision conservation works, in most cases, by focusing on those places and/or processes that can be leveraged to impact a disproportionate amount of pollution. By targeting specific areas, operators/landowners can gain significant environmental benefits while minimizing financial investments and adaptations in farming/ranching operations.
Precision conservation is a reality, and we are moving towards improved effectiveness of conservation practices by accounting for temporal and spatial variability within and off field.
This is the first book to cover the application of the principles of precision conservation to target conservation practices across fields and watersheds.
