As farmers and advisers continue to face challenges with the current fertilizer market, soil testing and precision agriculture have become valuable tools to optimally distribute inputs and maximize farm profitability. Agworld's platform provides a centralized location for farmers to manage all aspects of their farm operations, including soil sampling. But we leave the testing and results processing to the experts - our trusted lab partners.
Over the years Agworld has been expanding the ecosystem of lab partners to streamline the soil testing process and provide a centralized place to store sample results. We’re happy to welcome the four newest labs we’ve integrated with across North America:
These integrations are now live and ready to be used just like any other laboratory that is integrated with Agworld. Plus, you can now choose composite sampling as a sampling collection option (read more here in case you missed it)!
The Agworld sampling workflow is created to assist growers and their advisors with their sampling activities for which they use the Agworld app on their iPad when in the field. Before starting the sampling process, Agworld users can create sampling jobs from the Agworld website. Here they select point, grid or composite sampling, select the fields that are ready to be sampled and set the measurements (e.g. grid size, sampling depth).
Before creating and assigning out the sampling jobs, users can choose a laboratory, and a lab test suite relevant to the chosen lab, 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 your lab has processed the samples, the results automatically get uploaded into Agworld. If a user has chosen to process the results for precision, the results can be turned into a prescription after coming back 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 process a lot more simple. I’d love to make sure that you experience these same benefits - 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!
