FarmLogs Adds Free Soil Data Feature

04/28/2014 @ 2:35pm

Sandy, clay or loamy soil. . . know what soil types exist within your fields with a soil data layer feature from FarmLogs.


The free online soil maps show color-coded, high-resolution soil texture zones overlaid onto satellite imagery of a field, which not only lets farmers see what soil types lie within their fields but observe its slope and print reports. Farmers can then make better informed decisions about seed varieties, nutrient application, prediction and treatment of wet spots and more. Because the data is generated from a public land survey, it requires no extra work on the farmer's part.


"We are incredibly excited that we get to lead the charge in putting such useful data into farmers' hands," says Jesse Vollmar, FarmLogs CEO and co-founder. "Understanding the makeup of your fields' soils leads to better nutrient management, more soil and water conservation and higher yields."
