Soil organic matter

An indicator of past productivity and a driver of future yields

If you want to vary inputs based on productive capacity, a precise map of organic matter is crucial.  Because organic matter forms slowly over time, the soils that are higher in organic matter possess the combination of soil texture, internal drainage, landscape position, and other factors that over long periods of time have consistently generated additional plant growth -- resulting in higher OM.

Now, that increased OM level also leads to even higher productive capacity -- due to better water and nutrient-holding ability, nitrogen mineralization and soil structure.

Most precision agriculture applications can be improved with an accurate OM map layer -- variable rate population, nitrogen management, sampling zones, soil amendments, herbicides, cultivar selection, and more.
