SoilCares Lime (12 month license) & Handheld Scanner
Imagine scanning a soil sample with an easy-to-use handheld tool and receiving soil information (pH, organic matter, clay) all within 10 minutes. This is now possible with AgroCares Scanner and SoilCares Lime app.
AgroCares Scanner is a handheld device that relies on near-infrared sensor and a connection to AgroCares soil database to provide (via a mobile phone) quick, on-the-spot monitoring of nutrients in soil.
SoilCares Lime app allows you to use the AgroCares Scanner for monitoring the acidity of your soil. The Lime app provides information about the level of pH (KCl), organic matter and clay in your soil. The levels are indicated by placing these parameters into one of five ranges: very low, low, adequate, high and very high. The app also provides lime advice shown as “Neutralizing value” in kg lime (CaO) per hectare.
