​Site-Specific Management has been gaining traction in the Southeastern U.S. over the past few years and with this comes the need for understanding how to properly develop management zones. This presentation will help consultants, county agents, growers, and other practitioners in the Southeastern U.S. learn how to produce management zones and how these zones can be used to make management decisions. Specifically in this presentation, practitioners will learn: how to develop management zones for site-specific management; what these zones can be used for and how management zones correlate to other data; and how to soil sample using management zones. By the end of this presentation, the practitioner should be able to use site-specific management to make zone based management decisions.
