Get Into the Zone
Grid management is built around soil test data. A field is divided into, say, 5-acre squares and a soil sample is taken from the centre of each.
Zone management incorporates yield data, imagery, possibly EC testing, etc., to construct productivity zones, which govern how to manage the field. Zones are a function of soil attributes plus environmental conditions that determine yield.
