The following explanations are a breakdown of the services and solutions offered by MAPS to illustrate the start to finish, total precision package.
The starting point of an intensive nutrient management plan is a quality soil test. Obtaining quality soil cores is one of the most important steps in the MAPS program. MAPS partners with Midwest Independent Soil Samplers,Inc. to ensure that producers obtain quality results as quickly as possible.
MAPS soil samples are tested for the following nutrients:
Buffer pH (BpH)
Organic Matter (OM)
The data and information gathered through soil sampling of your specific field is entered into SOILMAP software.This software is then used by the MAPS team and professional agronomy staff to analyze, store and develop graphic images depicting levels and mapping of field details.The vast amount of information able to be derived from your field's soil samples,using SOILMAP software, will give insight into your field's needs and assist in making correct management decisions.
The next step in the MAPS program is developing site-specific nutrient recommendations based on sound agronomic principles. A professional agronomy staff, with practical experience, is essential to providing quality solutions.MAPS methods for managing fertility have been field-tested for over a decade, and each recommendation and decision is customized for your individual grower needs.
Field soil results and staff will assist with commodity and hybrid selection, along with correct fertilizer applications in the spring, and followed by fertilizer and tillage practice recommendations through the summer and fall.
In order to effectively strengthen your production efficiency and improve your bottom line, a wise investment in precision farming tools is necessary.Luckily, MAPS offers a complete line of precision tools for guidance, steering, and controlled input usage.
Unlike many companies who only provide one product or product line, MAPS understands that every field and grower has individual needs, so we carry multiple brands of precision tools.
The knowledge and understanding of precision technology by growers also varies.That's why MAPS makes sure their customers are educated on the understanding and use of their equipment, along with being kept up to date on new advances to their hardware.
Once all the data is collected, recommendations are made and hardware is purchased, it is the actual application that determines the outcome of MAPS tools & solutions.
You will achieve input efficiency through options in variable rate application of fertilizers and other nutrient inputs; along with controlled planting operations to ensure that time and money are not wasted.
Coupled with guidance and steering tools, you will see a positive change in the fuel consumption, machine hours, labor and input costs, and in the amount of skip and overlap, in comparison to your previous operations.
The most important piece of any agronomic tool is also the most commonly overlooked by other companies.However, the MAPS team has made it their commitment to see that their customers receive the total precision package.That means, that along with the professional soil sampling and data software, in conjunction with numerous hardware products, and accompanied by efficient application options, you also receive top of the line customer service and support.
