Zone mapping

This service combines soil variation scanning and grid mapping. Zone mapping starts with EM scanning and adds nutrition to the package .Basing soil sampling on soil variation scans is not only a more effective use of the soil scan but also adds greater accuracy to your nutritional variation. There are two ways to carry out this sampling, either taking one sample per zone or by overlaying a hectare grid in each zone. Some soil types hold certain nutrients better than others and a W pattern within a zone will show this. However, variation can also occur within a particular soil type, therefore overlaying 1ha grids over the soil zones is the most accurate way to determine nutrient levels. Each sample will still consist of a minimum of 16 cores. One sample per zone would require either a strategically placed point or a W pattern.
