This project aimed to provide improved tools and processes to evaluate the economic and environmental benefits, and risks, associated with technologies that address spatial variability in Australian farming systems. The research was based on two case studies and revolved around the decisions faced by farmers seeking to manage spatial variability, as observed through yield maps, on their grain farms. Such an approach allowed farmers to explore the value of the technologies in a real-life situation.
