Precision agriculture

Agrotest Laboratory makes agrochemical soil analysis for companies that use precision farming technologies on their fields.

HOW ARE PERFORMED SAMPLING, CHEMICAL ANALYSIS AND FIELD MAPPING

A pick-up equipped with an automatic sampler with GPS-reference arrives at the fields.

Pick-up goes around the field, drawing its outline in a special program (Ag Leader – SMS Mobile).

Then the program divides the analyzed field into plots of 1 ha, 5 ha or 10 ha (depending on the wishes of the customer)

Precision agriculture

In each plots the sampler takes 30-40 injections, which are mixed into one average sample from this plot. Example:

Field X, area 100 hectares. At the request of the client a grid for the analysis are 1 hectare.ha.

From each plot of 1 ha, the sampler selects 30-40 injections (depending on the physical properties of the soil) and mixes them into one average sample.

So, if the area of the analyzed field is 100 ha, with a sampling grid of 1 ha, the number of samples for agrochemical analysis is 100 units.

In this case, the coordinates of each selection point are recorded in a special program for precision agriculture (Ag Leader – SMS Mobile).

Each pick-up is equipped with a tracking controller to track its route.

All selected samples are analyzed in the analytical laboratory Agrotest, Kyiv.

AGROCHEMICAL ANALYSIS OF SOIL FOR PRESICION AGRICULTURE

This analysis includes the definition of the following parameters:

  • ✔  pH (H2O), pH (salt), pH (buffer), Conductivity, organic matter;
  • ✔   nitrate nitrogen, available phosphorus, exchangeable potassium and sodium, Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC);
  • ✔   exchangeable calcium and magnesium, sulfur sulfate;
  • ✔   available forms of micro elements: zinc, manganese, copper and iron;
  • ✔   mapping of fields;
  • ✔   calculation of fertilizer application doses for every 1 ha, 5 ha or 10 ha (depending on the selection of grid) for the planned crop and yield;
  • ✔   the technical task for differential application of fertilizers in the format set by the client;
  • further information support.
