Soil Sampling

Grid Soil Sampling

When starting a precision program, Grid Sampling should be the 1st step – and Western Equipment’s ISG team should be where you turn to get the job done.


The information WE collect by Grid Sampling will enable you to take advantage of variable rate technologies that will tell you exactly where and how much fertilizer to apply. This is done by pinpointing fertility highs and lows in your fields, which could be limiting yield, and even find problem areas where minerals may be at a toxic level. This valuable information will allow you to manage risk and get the most out of the money you spend on costly inputs. WE will take samples and provide the variable rate prescription maps for your fields.


Typically, one sample (made up of 8 cores) is taken every 2.5, 5 or 10 acres, at an 8” depth. We can also take sub samples down to 24” to measure mobile nutrients like nitrogen. Grid samples can be taken yearly or every 3 years. A smaller number of check samples can also be taken in specified areas to monitor fertility trends when a field is in a 3 year program.


Western Equipment’s ISG team is helping farmers get the most out of their land and equipment with the use of grid sampling and prescriptions. Most of the time, WE are able to either help reduce fertilizer cost or increase yield and in many cases, yield can be increased with no increase in total fertilizer cost. Don’t you think it’s time you took the next step?
