Soil chemical analysis is one of the most important data layers in crop farming. Typically, the soil information is coming from agrochemical laboratories analyzing field soil samples collected based on a grid or zonal approach. The number of soil characteristics in a concrete file can vary from 5-10 macronutrients such as Nitrogen(N), Phosphorus (P), Potassium (K), cation exchange capacity (CEC), soil organic matter (OM) content to 40-50 with all micronutrient properties.
How to use it?
You can upload soil sampling files into GeoPard Agriculture and get an easy-readable heatmap visualization of each attribute in the soil sampling file. In addition, you can delineate management zones based on any attribute, compare them with other layers like historical crop productivity and build variable rate fertilizer prescription files.
Moreover, GeoPard assists with the proper planning of zonal soil sampling. You can plan your soil sampling points and route based on GeoPard multi-year zones that reflect historical crop development pattern.
For the GeoPard team, the additional module with soil characteristics not only supports yet another powerful data layer but also is a step forward to cross-layer and multi-layer analytics.
Note that you are free to build own derivatives based on GeoPard analytics.
