Our agronomy and soil science team can assist you with:

 

  • Advice on general crop nutrition, soil fertility and plant health.
     

  • Processing of yield monitor information and mapping of variability within the field and analysis of yield information over time.
     

  • Identify and map topographical variability, either from ATV or from tractor collected data and establish relationships/quantifying impact of poor paddock drainage on crop yield and quality.
     

  • Identify in-field soil variability in terms of clay content and soil water holding capacity using dual EM and define appropriate locations for soil moisture monitoring equipment.
     

  • Conducting full characterization of soil within zones within fields and farms, to understand the cause of variability within soils both chemically and physically.
     

  • Through the use of multispectral imagery (Plant cell density and NDVI) identify the impact of soil type variability on plant growth and root development.
     

  • Use multispectral imagery to provide real-time monitoring of plant nitrogen status in crop and in season.
     

  • Using high level statistical analysis to identify relationships down to individual nutritional elements between all layers of field information collected to determine cause of variability.
     

  • Provide recommendations and devise prescriptions for the appropriate management of variability within field and farm, and tailor inputs to the individual characteristics and capabilities of the soils within the various zones identified.
     

  • Deliver analysed geo-referenced field and zone specific information using a farmer friendly platform (SST) that growers can also utilize in their day to day operations for record keeping and farm management.
