Specific agriculture per site, AEPS

Site-specific agriculture is defined as the art of performing the agronomic practices required by a plant species, in accordance with the spatial and temporal conditions of the place where it is grown, to obtain its potential yield.

Cenicaña has made successive approaches to agroecological zoning for the cultivation of sugarcane in the Cauca River Valley and has developed a series of tools that facilitate both the characterization of specific conditions and the obtaining of management recommendations and information about behavior crop production in each place and moment.

This interactive information system offers a series of analysis and consultation tools to geographic, climate and commercial production databases, an information system for the management of specific cane by site and a system for the management of water in crops of sugarcane. Information services are designed to support the development of site-specific agriculture in the Colombian sugar and alcohol agribusiness industry.
