Agworld entered the Canadian market in January 2020, and has seen exponential growth in Canada since that time, with agronomists, ag retailers as well as growers becoming part of the Agworld ecosystem in Canada. In order to support that growth and get Agworld users ready for the soil sampling this fall, a data integration with London, ON based A&L Laboratories Canada has been created. A&L services the agricultural industry by providing comprehensive analytical services for soil, plant tissue, feed, fertilizer, and water, as well as research & development of biological compounds and disease diagnostics. A&L serves clients throughout North America and overseas.
The integration between A&L and Agworld is live and ready to be used just like any other laboratory that is integrated with Agworld, with users able to use the integration for both single-depth and multi-depth samples.
The Agworld sampling workflow is created to assist growers and their advisors with their automatic sampling activities for which they use the Agworld app on their iPad when in the field. Before starting the automated sampling process, Agworld users can create sampling jobs from the Agworld website. Here they select point or grid sampling, select the fields that it’s relevant to and set the measurements (e.g. grid size, sampling depth). Before creating and assigning out the sampling jobs users can choose a laboratory, such as A&L, so that when a sampler completes a sampling job, the laboratory automatically gets notified with the sampling job information and the sample location for each barcode. For more information, see the tutorial below.
Once A&L has processed the samples, the results automatically get uploaded into Agworld.
Agworld continually works on expanding the number of testing laboratories and other partners that are integrated with the Agworld ecosystem in order to cater for the demand of our expanding customer base. Agworld clients save a lot of time on processing their soil samples and they consistently tell us that we’re making their autumn routines a lot more simple. I’d love to make sure that you experience these same benefits this autumn - so please give me a call on +1 724 249 6753 if you have any questions or if you’d like some additional training on soil sampling with Agworld!
