Soil Sampling Helps Water Conservation Efforts, with Clemson University GPS Technology

In *All, Water Security by Ag is America

Clemson University has created a GPS software to track soil sampling that will help farmers not only with profitability but also environmental efforts. The software will locate exactly where soil samples are taken to help producers ensure they are taking adequate samples and then evaluate the soil for nutrient recommendations.

With accurate soil data, growers can maximize yields or lower operating costs by managing their nutrient inputs. Knowing the correct amount of nutrients will also help fertilizer reduction and assist with water conservation efforts within the community. 

Each sampling zone gets their own ID and recommendations on nutrients such as potassium and phosphate – read more how the software works here.
