Description: One of the greatest changes that has taken place in agriculture in the last decade is the use of Geographical Information Systems and the Global Positioning System, allowing us to analyze and manage the land at a level never before possible. It can involve anything from grid sampling soils to analyzing the trade territory of an agribusiness. This new technology opens up a wealth of career opportunities for trained individuals, as there are a limited number of people in agriculture who are adequately trained in the use of the technology.
