Application combined with the AgroCares Scanner
The application is the successor of the SoilCares Manager that provides an analysis of key soil parameters. The new SoilCares Adviser Europe app measures pH, N, P & K level, soil structure and gives advice on the required nutrients depending on the crop and target yield. This makes it much easier to calculate fertilization advice. The report can easily be extracted and shared, for example via WhatsApp.
New window of opportunities
AgroCares solutions are unique in the world: in the field, real-time soil testing and receiving actual nutrient needs is not provided by any other company. This very new way of collecting soil data and providing advice opens a whole new world of opportunities. AgroCares Scanner solutions can for example be used to instantly check soil quality before deciding to acquire new land, to assess the ideal land use or to monitor soil fertility developments in a field during seasons and on specific spots.
From intuition-based farming to fact-based farming
Martin Dekker, AgroCares Business Manager Europe: “With this new application AgroCares is taking the next step in the transition from intuition-based to fact-based farming. By giving advisors insights into the actual nutrient needs of the fields of their farmers, they can give their farmers an even better fact-based advice. We are convinced that companies in Ukraine, Hungary and Poland are ready to start improving their soil health with this new digital farming solution.”
How does AgroCares technology work?
The sensor technology developed by AgroCares uses a global calibration database. In this database the electromagnetic spectrum of soil samples of a large part of the world is stored together with the chemical characteristics. AgroCares Scanner uses infrared (NIR) sensor technology, converting the sensor’s calibration data to the chemical characteristics of the soil. This Scanner works with a smartphone with associated apps, which are constantly renewed and expanded.
