As I talk with many astute growers on the cutting edge of precision farming technology, almost all of them build management zones in fields using soil electrical conductivity (EC) to accurately characterize and map soil variability.
Veris Technologies, a pioneer in this EC technology, offers a look into why researchers and growers are using this technology in more than 40 states and 25 foreign countries.
Also, take a look at several new products they have introduced. The compact Quad EC1000 that can be pulled by an ATV. And the new ATV-mounted PH Detector that can map several hundred acres per day.
