Soil Sampling

As most farmers are still in the middle of harvest, I pray that you all have a safe and successful harvest.  With the harvest coming to an end soon, it will be time to turn our attention to soil sampling.  Soil sampling is vital in the upkeep of the land, so that farmers can capitalize on detection of nutritional deficiencies in each field. Knowing what is in abundance or lacking can help farmers make adjustments through lime and fertilizer, thus optimizing their yield potential for the upcoming crop.

I offer a wide array of sampling venues. Conventional sampling is conducted by breaking down a field and pulling a soil sample per 10 acres.  Pulling soil samples this way can help growers increase precision on their sampling compared to most conventional methods.

GPS grid sampling is another venue which has seen tremendous gains over the past few years. GPS grids can be mapped in a field ranging from 1-5 acre grids, with a soil sample being pulled within each grid. GPS grid sampling is done through a computer software called AgFleet, in which the grid data is saved through the software and uploaded into software. That data can then be overlaid and transferred to a software program that can be uploaded into fertilizer trucks, who then can spread the lime and fertilizer according to the GPS grids. This can save growers a tremendous amount of money, because the lime and fertilizer are applied where they are most needed, and helps to create uniformity in each field that have samples pulled on a GPS sample.

However you choose to have your samples pulled, all samples will be pulled with the most advanced sampling technology available.  Samples are pulled using a sampler called the Wintex 1000.  The Wintex 1000 is a gas powered, hydraulic driven, and computer automated.  Through the use of the Wintex 1000, samples are pulled with the utmost precision with each sample taken.  The computer automation allows samples to be taken at the same depth each time, allowing the most uniformity possible for each sample taken in each field.
