    Posted on

    TerraMap - SoilOptix Passive SensorHIGH resolution soil scanning based on gamma-ray detection technology will deliver 'game-changing' soil mapping, according to agronomy business Hutchinsons, which has launched a new service to growers.

    TerraMap delivers resolutions of more than 800 points per hectare, compared to typically eight data points/ha using hectare grid sampling, providing high definition mapping of all common nutrients, pH, soil organic matter and cation exchange capacity (CEC), as well as elevation and plant available water.

  3. Precision: Does Plug and Play Work? – CPM – Oliver Wood

    Posted on

    Oliver Wood with TerraMapPrecision technology is improving all the time - but does that mean it's getting easier to use, or are we moving further away from the plug and play aspirations of the ISOBUS standard?

    It was a commendable target - to create an industry standard with which all manufacturers would comply, meaning that any brand of tractor would work with any other implement. But has ISOBUS really delivered? The answer, it seems, could come straight off a school report: Could do better.

    TerraMap Mini LogoLaunched by Hutchinsons at Cereals, TerraMap unique technology revolutionises the way in which soil nutrient mapping is undertaken in the UK and sets a new standard for accuracy in precision agriculture and soil knowledge.

    TerraMap scanning is not affected by soil moisture, compaction, crop cover or cultivation state. This means that there are very few limitations to when TerraMap can be used, offering a much wider operating window compared to other soil scanning systems.

    Terramap-display1High resolution soil scanning based on gamma-ray detection technology will deliver 'game-changing' soil mapping, according to agronomy business Hutchinsons, which has launched a new service to growers.

    TerraMap delivers resolutions of more than 800 points per hectare, compared to typically eight data points/ha using typical hectare grid sampling, providing high definition mapping of all common nutrients, pH, soil organic matter and cation exchange capacity (CEC), as well as elevation and plant available water.

  8. Increase Yields and Profitability – Farmers Guide

    Posted on

    Cereals_2019_Logo-Horizontal_Details_CMYKTrial results that reveal how to increase yields and improve profitability will be available to discuss at this year's Hutchinsons stand at Cereals.

    By comparing variably drilled wheat alongside a farm standard rate on spilt fields and taking them to yield, the statistically-valid work has proven that using Omnia Precision Agronomy can increase yields by an average of 0.6t/ha, worth £99/ha (based on wheat at £165/t). In this particular trial, costs of production were also reduced, by as much as £28/t, says Hutchinsons.

    Terramap is a soil scanning and mapping service available exclusively through Hutchinsons and Omnia. Terramap will be launched at Cereals.

  9. TerraMap lifts soil mapping accuracy and window – AgriTradeNews – Oliver Wood

    Posted on

    TerraMap Logo LayersHutchinsons has launched a new soil nutrient mapping service, which it says is the first high definition system available in the UK, with an extended data collection window.

    TerraMap uses gamma-ray detection technology to delivers resolutions of over 800 points per hectare, providing high definition mapping of all common nutrient properties, pH, soil texture, organic matter and cation exchange capacity (CEC) as well as elevation and plant available water.

  10. Discuss Profitability with Hutchinsons at Cereals – Stand 500 – Agronomist & Arable Farmer

    Posted on

    Cereals_2019_Logo-Horizontal_Details_CMYKVisitors to the Hutchinsons stand at Cereals will be able to discuss the results of last autumn's Omnia validation trials, which proved for the first time the financial benefits of variable drilling using Omnia.

    By comparing variably drilled wheat alongside a farm standard rate on split fields and taking them to yield, the statistically valid work has proven that using Omnia Precision Agronomy can increase yields by an average of 0.6t/ha, worth £99/ha (based on wheat at £165/t).
