Soil sampling after harvest
Farmers subscribed for the AgroBalance service offered by NIK Agro Service already benefit from soil sampling of the fields that the team performs immediately after harvesting.
Accurate soil sampling
The use of automatic hydraulic soil samplers ensures that the needed depth will be reached and the probe will takes a complete and homogeneous sample.
The sampling equipment also has a Trimble GPS device – industrial tablet MMX-070.
Depending on what is the purpose of the soil sample, the process can be executed in different ways:
- standard cell size and standard Z-sample sampling scheme – to make fertilization recommendations for crop feeding in the form of a Fertilization Plan;
- smaller cells and a specialized sampling method – for VRA (Variable Application Rate) technology.

Soil analysis and recommendations
For variable rate application of fertilizer, the VRA map can be loaded into a Trimble GPS device that manages the application rate in real-time, ensuring high precision and efficiency.
