SoilOptix® delivers a higher level of customization than any system available before. Our data is Variable Rate Application-ready for seed, fertilizer and other nutrient applications. These maps are tailored to the specific soil conditions across the planting area, with unprecedented accuracy.

With SoilOptix®, you get more data points, more definition and more detailed soil maps than any other system in the world at an affordable cost. The SoilOptix® system has been successfully proven by agronomists & ag retailers in Canada. As a result, it’s now being used in 11 countries around the world.

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, we can measure complex models like plant available water, and bulk density.
