The AutoProbe Team is excited about this write up on farmer owner/operators Mike and Brian Effertz in The Furrow magazine. The Furrow is the oldest Ag publication in the world. It has been in print since the 1800s and is published by John Deere. The AutoProbe Team is honored and proud to see Effertz Farms receive such great press about the need for improving soil sampling in their fields.
In a recent edition of The Progressive Farmer, AutoProbe Technologies was highlighted for their automated soil sampling device: the AutoProbe. Precision soil sampling continues to be on the rise, and we are proud to be the leader in offering this new technology. Our AutoProbe provides consistent precision, collecting uniform soil samples every 8.5 or 17 feet of travel, thereby producing a sample consisting of 27 insertions per acre in only 45 seconds.
AutoProbe Technologies was recently featured in the online publication, Corn and Soybean Digest. In the article, the AutoProbe, which can quickly and easily pull up to 40 cores at a time, is detailed, and its enormous benefits are once again praised.
AutoProbe Technologies is proud to announce that once again we are growing leaps and bounds. Our network of AutoProbe intensive sampling system providers and grower owners has once again expanded, and we are excited to be adding new additions to our team.
No matter how skilled a farmer is at predicting the fertility of his fields, it all comes back to having a high quality and precise soil sample. Because soil sampling has always been looked down upon as a chore, human error often pollutes the data and prevents agricultural professionals from obtaining accurate data.
AutoProbe Technologies recently received publicity for naming Effertz Farms out of Kansas City, MO a "new grower-centric sales and service provider for southeast Kansas and western Missouri."
"In April, our farm was visited by Jim and Jeff Burton.
The Burtons, a father and son team from Little Rock, Arkansas, developed and patented the AutoProbe. The AutoProbe was invented by Jim, who has an engineering background and participated in extensive specialty crop farming.
