Soil Sampling This Fall

Melissa SandfortAg Leader, Insights Weekly

Insights WeeklyAs we move deeper into the fall and harvest wraps up in some areas, growers and ag-professionals shift their focus towards other fall activities, like soil sampling. Ag Leader’s SMS Desktop and Mobile Software can assist with this activity helping you setup soil sampling sites and navigate to those while in the field. After you have collected these samples and acquired the results from the lab, many of us use this data to create site specific fertilizing prescriptions either based on our own formulas or those of a state university like…Iowa State, Kansas State, Purdue, Mississippi State, Ohio State and many other Universities publish.

Luke James, Ag Leader Software Sales Manager, gives us an overview of how the software works when it comes to soil sampling to create variable rate fertilizer prescriptions.

The SMS Software can also help you create these types of prescriptions by utilizing SMS Basic’s Prescription Editor or the SMS Advanced Equation Writer.

James says it’s all an effort to help farmers be more efficient and precise.
