Aim : The application and use of precision agriculture technologies targeting reduction in agricultural inputs are associated with various raw data and their assessment to create application maps. Yield mapping and soil mapping are the two basic agricultural application maps for variable-rate applications. Creation of high resolution digital soil maps requires high resolution information. The objective of this study was to predict total nitrogen in soil, using visible and near infrared (vis-NIR) reflectance spectroscopy, which is a new technology used for making fast and accurate measurements of physical and chemical properties of soil.
