  1. 100-fold upgrade in resolutions available - Farmers Guardian - Oliver Wood

    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.

    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.

  6. 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).

  7. The Silent Call of the Soil - CPM - Oliver Wood, Jim Woodward, Lewis McKerrow

    TerraMap - SoilOptix Passive SensorEver wondered what your soil is trying to tell you? CPM profiles a new service, using a tool that picks up a soil’s unique signature to give a window on its world.

    A certain amount of care is applied as the sodium-iodine crystal, encased in its carbon fibre tube, is placed in the foam-filled carry case, ready to move to the next site. It lies at the heart of what Hutchinsons believes is a “game-changing” soil-mapping service, that will quite literally unearth a wealth of spatial data that’s never before been captured.

    Looking at variety trials in CarliseThe annual Hutchinsons Carlisle crop demonstration open day to be held at Midtown Farm, Kirkbampton, Carlisle on Tuesday 18th June, by kind permission of the Brown family, promises an exciting insight into how yields can be improved through variety selection, targeted agronomy and precision technology.

    A host of demonstrations will hone in on four key topics; the latest winter wheat, barley and spring barley varieties, seed rate trials, the role of forage yield mapping and the newest precision farming tools from Hutchinsons.

    TerraMap soil scanning infographicUsing technology to map soil nutrients is not a new science; however, a newly launched system takes the process to a whole new level.

    Launched by Hutchinsons, TerraMap revolutionises the way in which soil nutrient mapping is undertaken. Today's precision farming requirements demand greater accuracy and UK growers do not currently have access to a high definition soil scanning system – until now, says precision technology manager Oliver Wood.

    TerraMap uses gamma ray detection technology that delivers resolutions of over 800 points/ha, providing high definition mapping of all common nutrient properties, pH, soil texture, organic matter (OM) and the Cation exchange capacity (CEC) of the soil, as well as elevation and plant available water.
