Western Ag Agronomist, Matt Witney, outlined the value in the work he and his clients have done with Precision Ag in highlighting problem areas in paddocks.
Matt also explained that often test results may say an area is all fine, even though it’s not yielding. Strategic deep soil testing has then revealed further insights to hidden soil restrictions.
“The main thing to start with is just highlighting the issues. There’s different problems in different paddocks and there’s so many areas we can improve because of variability in paddock. It’s a learning process.”
“I just ring them up and they upload it to the iPad in the tractor, and it’s that easy. It’s hard to believe how easy it is.”
“It’s a product anyone can use. You don’t need to understand it, you just plug it into the computer and drive. This is really helpful when you have numerous operators through that driver’s seat”.
“Soil is where everything happens, it’s where our bank of resources is, it’s where all the potential of the crop lies, yet it’s the thing we know the least about”.
