The app indicates the level of total nitrogen (N), total phosphorus (P), and exchangeable potassium (K) in the soil, as well as pH level, organic carbon and cation exchange capacity.
AgroCares Scanner is a handheld device that relies on near-infrared sensor and a connection to AgroCares database to provide (via a mobile phone) quick, on-the-spot monitoring of nutrients in soil.
