Focus Site Project: Evaluating soil mapping options

Project aims:

  • To identify and evaluate four different soil sampling techniques across two fields- one in arable production and one on a grassland field
  • To use two Electrical Conductivity (EC) scanning services to create soil map zones
  • To analyse subsequent soil sampling test results and compare the zone sampling techniques for variation
  • To provide knowledge transfer to other farmers on determining the most cost effective method of providing an accurate picture of soil and nutrient differences across a field
  • To demonstrate best practice in nutrient management planning
