High resolution grid mapping

Agrovista is the first agronomy company in the UK to offer 10m2 nutrient and soil type maps from satellite imagery data.

This high-resolution data means we can identify critical areas that may be missed by grid mapping.

We have the added benefit of being able to examine micronutrients and soil type.

Service use

  • Variable rate P, K, Mg, pH
  • Variable rate seed
  • Carbon levels


  • Greater resolution means deficient areas are more likely to be picked up
  • Micronutrient maps ensure a better understanding of limiting factors
  • Added benefits of being able to monitor carbon levels

Information required for application data:

  • Type of analysis – standard is S1 (P, K, Mg and pH). Further nutrients can be added for an additional fee. Two popular additions are Ca and OM.
  • Cropping – to create a fertiliser recommendation the decision support team require crop information, yield, target pH, muck information and straw policy.
  • Once these reports have been created it is then time for a discussion with the grower and agronomist.

Key Points to view in the results table:

The cropping form should be updated yearly for new recommendations. Four years of recommendations are supplied with this service.

For a greater depth of knowledge, it is suggested that a broad spectrum Solvita analysis is carried out for the whole field.
