A soil test is the first step toward accurate crop nutrition. You'll be better equipped to understand the nutrients your crop will require if you sample and analyze the soil in your fields. Soil sampling will boost fertilizer efficiency and the amount of production per acre.
Matches fertilizer type to crop needs.
Matches amount of fertilizer type crop needs.
Makes nutrients available when crops need them.
Keep nutrients where crops can use them.
A precise sample method that works best on high-testing areas and fields with a history of manure. Grids of 2.5 to 5 acres are used to subdivide fields. We can grid the fields to see which regions have high, medium, and low nutrient levels. Grid sampling prevents over- or under-fertilization and creates the most productive growing environment for plants in each field.
Collected using equipment that detects soil electrical conductivity to create exact soil maps. This provides us with incredibly precise soil-type mapping. Following that, these fields are sampled in 3-5 soil productivity zones, with suggestions based on soil types with similar physical attributes and production potential.
To develop accurate field maps and precise acre measures, we geo-reference all soil samples. We can return and resample the same parts of each field within 1-2 meters by logging our sample points, ensuring more precise results between sampling years.
