The Problem with hand sampling soil

The Problem

It's Garbage In - Garbage Out. Typically, 4-6 cores, or at best 10-12 cores, are pulled at inconsistent distances, angles, and depths. This practice simply cannot reap the high quality data today's grower requires to get the results promised by current technologies available to todays Top Growers.

Soil Sampling SolutionThe Solution

AutoProbe automated soil sampling technology collects up to 40 cores per sample effortlessly in a consistent, uniform, and accurate distance, angle, and depth from the comfort of a tractor cab.  Precise Sampling leads to Precise Planting and Precise Nutrient Management which brings about the best odds for maximum yield, lower costs and greater profit.
