Value of Data: Soil Sampling

by Oct 29, 2013Ag Leader, SMS™ Software, Value of Data

As we move deeper into the fall and harvest wraps up in some areas, growers and ag-professionals shift their focus towards other fall activities, like soil sampling. Ag Leader’s SMS Desktop and Mobile Software can assist with this activity helping you setup soil sampling sites and navigate to those while in the field. 

After you have collected these samples and acquired the results from the lab, many of us use this data to create site specific fertilizing prescriptions either based on our own formulas or those of a state university like:

Iowa State

Kansas State


Mississippi State

Ohio State


The SMS Software can also help you create these types of prescriptions by utilizing SMS Basic’s Prescription Editor


 Or, the SMS Advanced Equation Writer
