Targeting Farm Efficiency at CropTec 17
Every farm is different and every field has some level of soil variation. Agrii’s SoilQuest Precision Agronomy offers a service to evaluate, consult, and gather soil and nutrient data to advise on the specific needs of your individual farm business, whatever the size and budget. The SoilQuest service goes way beyond producing lots of pretty maps; it provides a tailor made Precision Agronomy package to help you drive yields, target inputs and maximise efficiency.
The backbone of the SoilQuest system is based on the creation of accurate field maps showing soil variation and nutrient status. These are achieved by measuring electrical conductivity at two depths using the Veris scanner and then analysing representative soil samples from each soil type zone. The resulting maps are then combined with accumulated grower and agronomist farm knowledge to divide fields into separate management zones in order to cost effectively target farm inputs, putting nutrients where they are needed.
“Understanding how soils vary across a farm and within individual fields is crucial for farm businesses to implement the latest input technology and optimising yields,” points out Precision Agronomy Manager, Stuart Alexander. “Our scanning service is the most reliable way of characterising management zones by their actual soil type and nutrient status for the best precision agronomy decision-making, ultimately leading to improved efficiency on farm.”
Visit the SoilQuest stand, number 82, in hall 1 at CropTec 2017 and speak to one of our local Facts and Soil and Water Qualified Account Managers to find out how they can help you farm business.
