SoilCares introduces Scanner packages to the Ukrainian market at the Agro Animal Show in Kyiv from February 21-23. The Scanner in combination with Apps on a smartphone will enable the Ukrainian agricultural market to test pH level and soil texture and receive practical lime recommendations in 10 minutes. From early spring, an App will be released to measure N, P and K and provide fertilizer recommendations.
SoilCares will be present at Agro Animal Show (Booth 27) to demonstrate the Scanner. As part of the introduction, the Scanner with the license can be purchased at the Agro Animal Show with a special early bird discount of 25% (from €4700 for €3500).
How does SoilCares technology work?
The sensor technology developed by SoilCares uses a global calibration database. In this database the electromagnetic spectrum of soil samples of a large part of the world is stored together with the chemical characteristics. SoilCares Scanner uses infrared (NIR) sensor technology, converting the sensor’s calibration data to the chemical characteristics of the soil. The Scanner service makes it possible to monitor soil fertility during the growing season of the crops. An app on a smartphone displays the soil status within 10 minutes. This Scanner works with a smartphone with associated apps, which are constantly renewed and expanded.
SoilCares develops innovative precision farming technology for soil, feed and leaf analysis. The company is part of Dutch Sprouts, a developer of affordable technology that allows farmers to generate more revenue. At Soilcares, agricultural experts work with researchers with the aim of making high-quality agricultural knowledge accessible and affordable to farmers and growers. SoilCares does this by giving farmers the technology literally into their hands. SoilCares was founded in 2013 in Wageningen.
