Summary

The project aims to develop a new soil sampling technology that enables the modeling of not only surface soil properties, but also subsurface properties and diagnostic properties which affect yield potential and might be addressed by agronomical actions. Survey sites are selected in 5 different locations of the country with varying geological, geomorphological and climatic conditions to develop a robust technology performing under diverse conditions

Precision agriculture technology is one of the main drivers of modern agriculture. Novel data collection equipment appears on a regular basis, geostatistical methods, clustering algorithms seem to be constant despite the fact that new methodologies are also available due to higher computing capacities, and higher resolution data collection.

We develop a new sampling technology that enables the modeling of not only surface soil properties, but also subsurface properties and diagnostic properties which affect yield potential and might be addressed by agronomical actions. Survey sites are selected in 5 different locations of the country with varying geological, geomorphological and climatic conditions to develop a robust technology performing under diverse conditions.

Milestones

2017

Submission

Submission of tender documents to the authorities.
2017

Acquisition

The members of the project got the tools needed to collect the data. The tested data analysis methodology was used to measure, verify and evaluate the results.
2017

Sampling

The harmonized GIS database required for the project was created. The sampling protocol, the spatial extension of the laboratory data, the nutrient supply maps supplemented with the nutrient management plans also.
2019
