On-the-spot quality soil analysis for increased yields

SoilCares developed an easy-to-use handheld SoilCares Scanner which enables farmers to do their own on-the-spot quality soil checks. The Scanner will determine the amount of Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium available in the soil as well as the pH and the organic matter level. The data have to be uploaded via a specific app. To predict the soil status, the Scanner results are compared with the SoilCares Global Soil Database. The farmer will be provided with a report on the smartphone, containing a list of crops suitable for the soil that was checked, as well as hands-on lime and fertilizer recommendation alternatives that are available in a specific country.
