SOLVING PROBLEMS OF WATER USE
Conserving soil, water and nutrients doesn't just reduce pollution, its good agricultural practice. If managed properly it can build soil health and reduce the need for inputs. But it's a complex problem that the industry, as a whole, struggles with. Help is at hand. SoilEssentials, the award-winning, Scottish precision farming specialists believe they have an answer in their cloud platform KORE that can deliver. Data platforms can make sense of the complicated. Farmers, water companies, waste managers, consumers and the environment can all benefit.
The focus of this year’s offering at Cereals Event is Actionable Information out of their data platform KORE. Focusing on water use and nutrients. By looking at the water companies, better use of water and nutrients helps to ensure the availability of water resources and also water quality. Waste management companies can demonstrate agricultural benefit from their products and ensure their proper application to avoid pollution. Growers can avoid losses of inputs which cost money through wasted inputs and lost yield or quality, but also ensuring they help protect the water they use.
KORE can deliver real-time risk maps of where nutrients and pesticides can be lost from fields due to erosion, leaching or denitrification. SoilEssentials will also be delivering a product that indicates where soils are building organic matter and available nitrogen, reducing the need for inputs. Their soil water maps indicate the actual crop requirements rather than just the soil moisture deficit.
