Project description

Software solution to produce precise soil maps

A wide range of parameters such as soil texture, water substance and pH is indispensable for the development of precision agriculture. Due to their availability and current analysis techniques, it is possible to determine needs regarding irrigation, seeds and fertilisers. However, the variability of soils represents a particular obstacle to precision agriculture. Additionally, existing techniques of soil characterisation are not reliable, are expensive and require a large number of samples. The EU-funded BIOMAP2SOIL project will validate and refine a cost-effective software solution that is a sampling and analysis method based on long experience and statistical models. The solution will produce precise soil maps and provide recommendations to farmers for integrated crop management that will optimise crop selection, irrigation, and pest and disease control.
