GPS technology is widely used throughout Argentina, close to 100% in areas... We had a very lengthy discussion about mining nutrition using our liquid fertiliser philosophy, until I suggested that with their 120 kg/ha of DAP and 100 units of N to grow 20 t/ha, they were probably mining more than we were...
