Getting started – really know your soils

Really getting to know your soils is an important step for enhancing crop performance and maximising the efficient use of inputs. On many farms, large variation in soil texture and depth has a big impact on yield. Using Agrii’s SoilQuest (Veris) scanner, we can scan your fields at two soil depths – shallow (0-30cm) and deep (30-90cm) – and use this information to create management zones. Within these we can examine the physical, chemical and biological properties of the soil.

This provides us with a clear understanding of the profile of your soils and enables us to create zones for each of your fields. Using our agronomists’ knowledge we can use the data captured from these zones to drive precision farming forwards for your business.

Once these zones are made, they don’t change unless the earth moves! Your field soil zones can be used in your crop management throughout the year and for many years to come.

Targeting for profit

SoilQuest Precision Agronomy equips you with accurate information to better target management effort and resources on your farm:

  • Nutrient analysis – ensure samples are only taken in optimum locations, reducing cost and providing more accurate information
  • Seed – vary seed rates to achieve optimum plant counts
  • Nitrogen – better understand variations in soil type and adapt applications accordingly
  • Yield potential – manage soil zones differently to reduce variation and ensure the best gross margin is achieved
  • Pests – target seed rates and slug pellet applications to improve plant stands and avoid leaching
  • Cultivations – detailed zone maps enable cultivations to be varied for optimum establishment
  • Environmental – better targeting helps you comply with increasing legislative requirements
