Digital base fertilization with Agricon

From the demand analysis to automatic balancing

agricon Base Fertilization

Why is the digital base fertilization with Agricon of value?

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…

  • farmers spread calcium, P, K und Mg automatically on each part of the field where they are needed.
  • lack of nutrients is fixed.
  • excess passages and fertilizer costs are saved on areas with sufficient supply.
  • oversupply - especially in livestock farms - is excluded.

Advantage of the Agricon base fertilization concept

 

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

 

Feature of Agricon base fertilization method


Detailed soil zone maps | the basis for optimized soil sampling

 

Soil scanning map (left) and dynamic grid (right)

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.

Advantages:

  • high spatial resolution
  • free from the subjective influence of human beings
  • non-destructive measurement methods
  • reproducible
  • one-time measurement is sufficient

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.





Nutrient distribution maps | pH-value as well as P, K and Mg can be seen at a glance

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.

Benefits:

  • GPS-supported soil sampling: routes and sample points are recorded.
  • personal consultant: close coordination with the sampling technician in your region, in particular with regard to the passability of the areas and recently applied fertilizer
  • transparent processing: regular updates of the work status of your sampling order in agriPORT
  • Application of an innovative non-stop sampling technology: High efficiency and consistent quality - even in tight time windows
  • certified test report on paper and in digital form in agriPORT

Fertilization planning | now your soil survey pays off

Eletronic spreading maps

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.

Advantages:

  • Fertilization planning for every part of the field based on the individual soil group.
  • automatic calculation of optimum fertilizer amounts according to the already filed country-specific fertilization rules.
  • all planning data are adjustable individually.
  • easily applied, yielfd effects are realized shortly.
  • Multiple access principle enables the engagement of authorised third parties, for example, consultant or service provider.
  • complete organisation of fertilization planning and support during the application through agricon specialists.
