Can I use the SWAT BOX on my own equipment to collect EC data?

Yes, if you have access to very accurate elevation data such as LIDAR or RTK using a mobile base station. In some cases, elevation data from your own equipment can be used but the quality of data would first need to be assessed by our map developers.

    • Why use 10 zones for SWAT MAPS zone maps?

      We take pride in high resolution maps so 10 zones are required. This allows enough flexibility to vary rates of product across fields with significant variability. We know some fields with minimal variability may require less than 10 different rates ...
    • What is Electrical Conductivity (EC)?

      EC is a measure of soil electrical conductivity, which is largely determined by salinity (soluble salts) and soil texture (clay content). When combined with topography and site-specific soil tests, it is a proven way of delineating management zones ...
    • Do you use yield maps?

      Yield maps, if accurate, can serve as a good report card of what has occurred in your field that year. However, yield maps are different every year and even when using a 10-year average, they don't tell you why the yield was at a certain level in one ...
