What Is Soil Mapping?
Soil mapping, soil survey is the process of classifying soil types and other soil properties in a given area and geo-encoding such information
Using cutting-edge geo-statistics, Cropnuts has developed soil fertility maps for several African countries. We make these maps by collecting samples from hundreds of pre-determined sites and then analysing them in our laboratory. From this analysis, we can map out of the key growing regions in multiple different countries.
These maps have been used by fertiliser blending companies and research institutions to develop specialist fertiliser blends for specific crops in different agro-ecological zones – a process that we call Smart Blending.
