Soil scanning and analysis

Tradition combines innovation.

Soil scanning provides a detailed map of the variation in soil properties across the field. It’s an ideal base for making informed management decisions and accurate soil nutrient analysis.

EM scanning service collects data at a high rate for multiple parameters, at two depths of soil, ensuring complete and comprehensive mapping of your fields.

Scanning process

Our scanning device doesn’t require an invasive contact with the ground, therefore the scanning process is not restricted to bare or ploughed fields. Soil moisture is an important element in creating detailed maps. Taking that into consideration, the time period autumn through to spring are ideal for data collection.

Because scanning is a one-off process and an investment for the future field management, we collect a high density of data to create highly detailed maps:

Travelling in the field gives a representative scan of the field.

Dual depth information provides an indication of soil changes through the profile - the scanner collects information up to 40cm and up to 130cm.

High data rate ensures, that we collect as much relevant data as possible. 11 parameters are recorded 8 times a second, giving a high dense information set.

The combination of these factors means, that the conductivity maps collected, provide you with a reliable, digital, and detailed farming resource.

Using conductivity maps

Collecting the scanning data is just one of the steps in utilizing the sensor maps. We believe, that our support in maximizing your use of the data is a key part of this service.

Scanning maps can be used for a number of factors:

To identify management areas, or yield potentials when used in combination with yield maps

To reduce soil sampling costs by identifying sampling targets

To get the map with different layers, representing soil nutrient (Macro and Micro elements) as well as EC, pH, soil texture and topography

To create variable rate seed maps, which are not restricted to a limited number of discrete zones

Once scanning maps have been collected, we work closely with our customers to integrate their knowledge of field characteristics into decision processes, as well as carefully considering other elements, which may affect field performance – for example, the locations of old field boundaries. Whether you want prescriptive maps being created for you, or training session to create the maps by yourself, we are committed to open data exchange and supportive service.

Laboratory analysis

Water analysis

Various irrigation systems are used in areas, where the amount of precipitation is insufficient, and the water, that the plant needs is not accessible by natural means. In case, the amount of the elements in the water used in agriculture is more or less than a normal, soil might be aggravated over time, an erosion can arise and the development of the plants may be weakened or completely stopped, due to some potential toxic substances. According to the results of the water analysis, it should be clear, whether the use of the water is efficient or not. In the end of the water analysis report, we indicate the water category and overall opinion.

Package - 105 AZN

pH, EC, SAR, RSC, Sulphate, Chlorine, Carbonate, Bicarbonate, Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Natrium, Boron.

Sampling procedure:

A clean and transparent 330 mL bottle, should be rinsed with water at least 3 times, before sample water is poured.

The water which is considered as a sample, should be poured onto the ground for 3-5 minutes, then filled into the bottle, without leaving any air bubbles.

The lid should be tightly closed and stored in a dark place.

For the sake of insurance, you should take 2 bottles of 330 ml each.

An additional fee will be charged, if our employee is appointed for sampling.

Soil analysis

Via this analysis, you’ll get an understanding of the fertilizer needs of your area. When you’ll analyze soil analysis results with the requirements of the plant, that you want to plant, it will become known, the type and the amount of the nutrients you’ll need for the high productivity. In order to achieve the expected outcome of the analysis, it is essential that the samples to be taken according to the rules and properly analyzed.

Package 1 - 65 AZN

Parameters: Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, Organic Substance, pH, EC, Salt, Lime, Texture.

Package 3 - 105 AZN
