  • GPS Soil Sampling
    • Field is mapped with a GPS to establish the area and boundary. Individual samples are taken on a grid (normally one hectare). The grid size is determined by the type of crop or your specific needs and budget. Samples are packed seperately and sent to a laboratory of your choice. Sampling for other characteristics such as clay percentage and soil type can also be done.(Click here for pictures...)
  • Reports and Recommendations
    • For each analysis maps are generated by a GIS-based computer program using results received from the laboratory on soil samples. These maps reflect the difference in for example the pH value over your entire field. This is used to identify differences and shortages on the field. Maps can also be used in addition with other maps such as Yield Maps received from your harvester or your harvesting contractor.
    • Recommendation files and maps are then generated from these results. Formulas from any qualified person like your fertilizer agent or agriculture consultant can be used. These recommendation files are used to indicate what products and which areas should be spread or sprayed on the field. These files are normally in .shp or .tgt format for use on most precision farming equipment.
