GPS Grid Mapping
Intensive soil sampling for Phosphate, Potash, Magnesium & Lime can be a very cost effective management tool for your farm. We operate this service throughout the UK for farmers and agronomists and have had some incredible results with growers saving an average of over 30% on P & K fertilisers. One grower even reduced his annual spend by 83%!!! Apart from the financial and environmental benefits, you can be confident that your fertiliser application is targeted and being spread exactly where the soil needs it.
The 4 year programme for nutrient management gives you the ability to plan ahead and budget for what your soil actually requires, NOT what it’s always been used to. Once the mapping is completed, we tailor your fertiliser prescriptions based around your cropping, yields, straw and manures to create the most efficient and effective fertiliser regime for your fields.
Our GPS Nutrient Mapping is very similar to SOYL mapping. Being a smaller organisation our attention to detail and competitive pricing is key. Phieldtek provide full support, back up and F.A.C.T.S qualified advisers giving you a quick turnaround on results and any questions you may have.
Included in the price of the mapping is digital data for all of your variable rate applications. Phieldtek are familiar with hardware support so we can offer advice and troubleshoot your existing application systems to keep the wheels turning.
If you don’t have VRA equipment we can still help you to target your P & K with:
- GPS & VRA Spreading contractors arranged
- GPS Hardware & software rented or supplied to get you started
- Printed prescription maps for manually variable spreading
