Yield Mapping

Yield mapping is a yield monitor coupled with a GPS on a combine harvester. Each yield reading is tagged with a latitude and longitude coordinate, which is then used to produce a yield map. Yield maps will enable the farmer to pinpoint low yielding areas within a field, so that targeted soil samples can be taken and corrective recommendations implemented prior to the start of the next seasonRead More...

Soil Healthcare Program

Your soil is your most valuable farm resource. Building healthy farm soils is the best investment a farmer can make to increase crop yields whilst reducing inputs and driving up profitability - healthy soils work for the farmer, not against the farmer. Sick soils produce low yielding crops that are more prone to disease and pest attack. Read more....
