Agri Optics - EM Soil Surveys and Precision Ag Data Solutions

Provide full digital map of your farm to sub 2cm accuracy. Identify textures with ground truthing.



WeedSeeker® technology uses sensors and nozzles spaced at 300mm - 380mm apart.This is due to the narrower field of view associated with the WeedSeeker® sensors compared to a 500mm spacing on a standard boom. WeedSeeker® can also be used to selectively apply fungicides, insecticides, fertilisers and other inputs to targeted plants instead of ‘weeds’ in a range of applications.


Mapping and variable rate application system

These images can by used to create management zones, identify pest and disease problems, evaluate drainage systems efficacy, modifying soil sampling strategies, monitor and modify irrigation schedules, determine optimum harvesting dates and make variable rate prescription maps. GreenSeeker® optical sensor technology enables you to measure, in real time, a crop's nitrogen levels and variably rate apply the "prescribed" nitrogen requirements.


Smart - N

In 2010 the Precision Pastoral Nutrient Management Group was set up and gained funding through MAF-SFF to look at the viability of the Snmart-N Fertiliser Application system. Nitrogen leaching from dairy pasture is recognised as the number one environmental problem facing our dairy industry, and cow urine patches are the main culprit.


EM Soil Surveys

Soils vary across farms and within paddocks but the practice has been to manage these as though variations did not exist – applying a consistent rate of fertiliser across a paddock being an example. The EM38-MK2 provides measurement of both quad-phase and in-phase components, within two distinct depth ranges, all simultaneously, without any requirement for soil-to-instrument contact.
