Veris Soil Mapping
I operate a Veris MSP3 to map soil electrical conductivity, soil pH, and organic matter. Collecting these data layers on a spatially dense scale allows you to unlock critical information for you decision making process and manage each acre at its fullest potential.
Collecting this information for your fields is much more precise than SURGGO soil maps created in the 1960's, and gives you an accurate look at the variability across your fields. We can use this information to create management zones for hybrid selection, population rates, and irrigation management.
Soil sampling is one of the most cost effective dollars spent in your operation. Soil sampling gives you the account balance of your field nutrients. We soil sample both as directed zones or as grids ranging from 1.1 to 4.4 acres with the majority at 2.5 acre grids. This flexibility gives you the best snapshot of how your field nutrients vary with soil type, topography, and historical management so you can optimize each acre for the growing season. By sampling on a routine basis we are able to better understand what factors are limiting our yields or causing antagonisms.
Soil sampling is really the basis for our long term management plans. Make the investment to give yourself a strong foundation for future cropping seasons.
Granular farm management software helps you solve problems in real time. Advanced nitrogen modeling shows you the impact of weather on your nutrient status and helps you make mid season decisions to impact your final yields. Granular provides the tools to help you manage your fields optimally, with prescription seeding rates and hybrid recommendations, a large dataset of in-season satellite imagery, and drone based early season stand counts. It also provides you a breakdown of profitability per acre and helps you pinpoint areas for improvement.
We offer on demand drone scouting and imagery services. We use this technology to get a look at portions of the field that are hard to access in season, after wind or hail damage, and to help understand patterns you may see in your fields.
