PhieldteK is the name of our precision farming services division, utilising GPS hardware, intensive soil sampling techniques and software to create site specific lime & fertiliser plans for growers.
In addition to our standard pH sampling service we also offer growers a GPS pH mapping option. Field boundaries are mapped and sample points are logged in the field to sub 1 metre accuracy. Variable rate lime spreading maps are then created so that lime is applied at different rates to varying pH levels. Hardware fitted in the tractor cab determines the areas and rates that are to be applied.
