  1. Boosting Accuracy and Detail of Soil Analysis – Precise – Oliver Wood

    Posted on

    Terra Map - Soil OptixAgronomy firm Hutchinsons claims the technology at the centre of its new soil scanning system offers a greater level of precision than is possible with established techniques.

    When compared with traditional zone-based scanning or grid-based sample point systems, measurement of a wider range of soil quality properties and greater accuracy when measuring them are the key claims for new soil analysis technology introduced this season to the UK by agronomy company Hutchinsons.

    The British Guild of Agricultural Journalists’ 2019 Omnia Precision Agronomy Award, sponsored by Hutchinsons’ Omnia Precision Agronomy, is open for entries.

    Entries are open to any Guild member who has had a feature about precision farming technologies in arable agriculture or horticulture published or broadcast between 1 August 2018 and 1 August 2019.

    The award reflects the growing use and importance of precision farming technologies in growing crops, and the need for agricultural journalists to report on its intricacies and potential with clarity.There is a £1,000 prize for the winning article and £500 for the runner up, with the results to be announced at this year’s Guild Harvest Lunch in London on 17 October.

    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.

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

    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 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.

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

    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).
