WHAT DO WE DO?

We are passionate about using technology to help farmers understand and improve their soil health to grow better crops and feed the world. SoilOptix® is inspired to bring to agriculture a new one-of-a-kind, affordable soil analysis system that sets a new standard for accuracy in precision agriculture. Offering much more than traditional soil measurement practices, SoilOptix® delivers the highest definition and most detailed field nutrient maps obtainable today. This empowers growers to make the best decisions for management and soil stewardship. SoilOptix® is your best choice, because every square foot is unique.

WHY CHOOSE US?

We believe that everything starts with the soil. In order to capture the full potential of their field, growers need to know what the soil is providing them with. With SoilOptix®, growers and agronomists get the most in-depth analysis of their soil with a resolution of approximately 335 points per acre. 

SoilOptix® gives growers a deeper understanding of the variability in fertility and textural-based properties of their soil.

icon-orange Over 25 layers available. Micro & macro nutrient layers.

SoilOptix® measures and maps all common nutrient properties (e.g. pH, organic matter, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium) along with various soil textures (e.g. % clay, % sand, % silt) plus plant available water, and bulk density.
 

icon-green 335 points/acre. Highest definition.

With SoilOptix®, you get more data points, more definition and more detailed soil maps than any other system in the world at a very affordable cost. The SoilOptix® system has been successfully proven with farmers in Canada and is now being used in other countries around the world.

icon-blue VRA ready. Unmatched soil texture profiling.

SoilOptix® delivers a higher level of customization than ever available before. You can program Variable Rate Application for seed, fertilizer and other nutrient applications, tailored to the specific soil conditions across the planting area, with unprecedented accuracy.

For decades, low definition soil tests have only scratched the surface.

Conventional soil testing averages only 1 to 2 samples per acre, delivering accuracy of only about 15% on soil fertility. Results between these points can vary significantly, with results that can be misleading, especially for programming variable rate input equipment.

Today’s application technology demands greater accuracy!

What Others Are Saying

Mike Strang, an Exeter cashcropper and Innovative Farmers Association of Ontario director, discovered SoilOptix® technology and immediately was drawn to its detailed mapping results. He discusses the many benefits that these comprehensive maps have brought to his business at Strang Farms and his thoughts on SoilOptix®’s future with his operation.

Chuck Baresich is a cash cropper in Bothwell, Ontario. Alongside his brother, he owns and operates their farm Haggerty Creek Ltd. After having SoilOptix® test out a few of his fields at home, he was shocked by the detail and accuracy of the mapping technology, and is eager to recommend SoilOptix® to other producers.

HOW IT WORKS?​

The SoilOptix® scanner reads gamma rays emitted by the soil that provide a complex picture of its condition at 335 points per acre. Physical soil samples are integrated into our readings. SoilOptix® uses proprietary software to translate this information into high definition digital maps. The resulting data is VRA ready to maximize seeding and input performance.
