The FertiSaver-N Beta Program is now underway at two laboratories in East Central Illinois. GMS Laboratories in Cropsey, IL and CropSmith Inc. in Farmer City, IL are the first providers of the FertiSaver-N test. At Soil Diagnostics, we thank them for their support and patience as we work through the initial rollout of the hardware and the software. Both companies have pioneering nitrogen management programs that boost grower profitability through precision nitrogen placement.

What is the N-supplying Power of Your Soil?

Q: Why are some soils more fertile than others?

Dr. Khan:

Most soils of the Midwestern USA are very fertile because they are moderate to high in organic matter, developed on deep loess deposits and have good nutrient and water supplying potential. These soils need less nutrient inputs from fertilizers, as opposed to those soils that are lower in organic matter with a limited rooting depth, and thus lower in overall nutrient supplying capacity.

Q: How much nitrogen is required by a crop over the growing season?

Soil Diagnostics Inc. has won a National Science Foundation award in the Small Business Innovation Research program. The award will support ongoing product development to bring a novel, low cost soil fertility sensor to market. The project entitled, "Development of a scalable soil nitrogen measurement system for efficient nitrogen fertilizer management" is an important step towards reducing nitrogen fertlizer application.
