    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.

    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.

    TerraMap - SoilOptix Passive SensorA high definition soil mapping service has been launched in the UK to give growers improved accuracy in understanding their soils.

    Unveiled by the UK farm advice and supply company, Hutchinsons, the new TerraMap system uses gamma-ray detection to deliver high definition mapping of all common nutrient properties.

    These include pH, soil texture, organic matter and CEC (Cation exchange capacity), as well as elevation and plant available water.

    TerraMap Mini LogoSoil nutrient mapping is set to get a lot more accurate and detailed as the scanning technology used for detecting minerals from the air across the wilds of Canada is being adapted for the UK farm.

    A helicopter-mounted sensor used for mineral prospecting has been scaled down to a high-definition soil scanning system which is being launched as TerraMap to refine precision farming systems.

    Dick-Neale“It's worth remembering that all drills come factory set” Dick Neale, Hutchinsons.

    At a recent Farmacy open day at Redhouse Farm, Waddingworth, Lincolnshire, Dick Neale spent some time explaining the subtleties of direct drilling. Andy Newbold went along to find out more.

    Dick explained how the topsoil changes from the first year of direct drilling through subsequent seasons and how the grower's approach should reflect these changes.
