Practical experience shows: Although the necessary quantities of fertiliser are often applied, they are distributed sub-optimally. If partial areas of a field remain undersupplied as a result, the consequence is a drop in yields, irrespective of the soil quality.
With Agricon base fertilization method…
|Increased soil fertility|
excess proceeds* [∅]
= 50 - 100 €/ha*
|Growth of N-efficiency|
|Higher yeild and guarantee of harvested crop quality|
|Saving of operational resources & avoidance of unnecessary crossings|
* Results from our own analysis of ca. 500.000 ha sampled area in Germany
Differences within plant population mostly depend on the soil. The measurement of electrical conductivity with the help of a soil scanner gives the first impression of these relative differences. As a result you get detailed soil zone maps.
In order to carry out soil sampling, field parts are devided by a grid. Zones of the same conductivity have similar soil properties. Soil analysis should be carried out in these areas.
For maximum precision and repeatability, the dynamic grid according to the soil scanning map is preferable to a rigid grid.
The results of the soil analysis are nutrient distribution maps for lime, phosphorus, magnesium and potassium. These make it clear at a glance which areas should be fertilized and where you can save on crossings and fertilizers.
The investment into the soil analysis pays off by a consistent implementation of soil sampling results with further application. The Calculation of fertilizer amounts is carried out automatically with agriPORT.
