GPS Soil Sampling :

Vantage Ireland offers a GPS soil sample collection and testing service in conjunction with FarmTech Solutions. We travel your farm and collect all the necessary samples using a hydraulic Wintex 1000 sampling machine mounted on a quad bike. This enables us to take samples at a consistent depth.

Soil testing is a vital information tool in maximising fertiliser and lime. Getting your soil tested will enable you to take the guesswork out of fixing any nutrient issues.

Samples locations are pinpointed by GPS positioning which is used to create prescription maps.
