Progressive Soil


Progressive Soil is designed to find and manage the different producing zones across your farm so that each zone can reach maximum production and contribute to the bottom line in profits. Profits increase in two ways – by maximum production and by reducing inputs where they do not produce a full return-on-investment. If you are putting dollars into crop inputs in areas where return on those dollars are not materializing, this will reduce your total profit for your field and farm.

To gain good results, you need yield data at harvest. To gain better results, you need variable rate population. To gain great results, you need hybrids and varieties that have a plant type and structure that matches the zone it is planted in.

With Progressive Soil mapping technology growers can discover areas of opportunity in their fields.

Our gamma radiation-based sensor data is combined with strategically located soil samples as calibration, providing you with soil mapping results in high-resolution top soil property layers.


Make Better Decisions

Progressive Soil provides growers with soil analysis results that allow them to make better on-farm decisions.

  • 335 Data points per acre: For a final resolution of 11.5-foot cell sizes
  • Over 25 Data layers: Including macro & micronutrients, soil pH, organic matter, and soil health.
  • VRA-Ready data: Our files are compatible with most precision ag data platforms

How Progressive Soil Works?

How does Progressive Soil take field mapping to the next level?

  • Progressive Soil uses a non-contact sensor mounted on our ATV approx. 2 ft off the ground, traveling up to 12 mph in 40-foot swath widths. The sensor measures natural soil properties emitted from the soil’s decaying process, Caesium-137, Uranium-238, Thorium-232, and Potassium-40.
