About this book

Using mathematics, technology, and creativity, this volume examines the development of nutrient management practices that help producers improve their profitability and energy efficiency. Throughout the book, chapters demonstrate how complex mathematical and spatial modeling approaches can provide the basis for much of our present and certainly our future management practices.

The book includes an interative CD for readers to work through example GIS applications.
