Teralytic's solution for direct detection of soil macronutrients remains unique

October 25, 2018 | Case Study

Variable rate application (VRA) of crop inputs is expanding. Countless detection solutions exist to produce VRA maps based on soil moisture and type, but viable commercial solutions using direct measurements of soil macronutrients (N, P, and K) remain elusive. Laboratory soil analyses, which cost on average $15 per acre, are the most common solution but suffer from infrequent sampling (longer than one week) and slow turnaround time (six to 10 days). Teralytic provides a unique, continuous (15-minute intervals), direct measurement solution for soil macronutrients (along with air temperature, humidity, light level, soil moisture, soil salinity, soil temperature, soil pH, oxygen, and carbon dioxide) simultaneously through the soil profile.
