Map Sample Sites within paddocks within Farms
SoilTech maps sample points within paddocks automatically. Sample sites can be mapped within Paddock boundaries, Aerial Photographs or Satellite Images.
Soil or plant test results can also be mapped at sample sites. The pH or nutrient results for each soil depth are colour coded to quickly visualise the condition of the farm’s soils in a spatial view. When sites are resampled, this visual display makes it easy to see how soil pH or nutrient levels have changed over time across your farm.
Information presented in this way is easy to understand and assimilate. All sample locations are in a format that can be imported easily into PAM.
SoilTech uses digital mapping to locate or relocate sample sites
Aerial photographs, yield maps and biomass satellite maps can be used to pinpoint sample sites. Contractors use GPS to return to the exact locations for re-sampling in subsequent years. Changes in soil pH and other properties (eg P, K etc) can be monitored over time. Management decisions on liming and fertilising can only improve with the knowledge of the effects of past decisions on current pH and nutrient levels. In addition, adding yield or biomass measurements can add a further dimension to the knowledge base.
SoilTech helps farmers manage and monitor their information
SoilTech’s mapping shows farmers how their liming and fertilizer program is changing their soil pH and soil and plant nutrition.
