AutoProbe Technologies, LLC, Little Rock, Ark., continues to grow its network of AutoProbe intensive sampling system providers and grower owners. Nelson Precision Ag Consulting & Technology (NPACT, LLC), Jackson, Neb., announced purchase of the AutoProbe automated soil sampler. The NPACT sales and service territory includes northeast Nebraska, western Iowa, southeastern South Dakota and the northwestern tip of Minnesota. 

NPACT, LLC manager Taylor Nelson says, "We're committed to having the most accurate data to base input decisions as profitability depends on consistency and accuracy. Traditional sampling methods lack the consistency and efficiency necessary to obtain reliable information. We've explored several options and we're firmly convinced that the AutoProbe automated intensive soil sampler can do just that. Sample size is comprised of up to 40 cores; far greater than the industry standard. A larger sample size, along with the consistent angle, depth and GPS accuracy creates the most comprehensive sample currently possible.

"The AutoProbe is the most efficient soil sampling machine in the world today. It's the perfect mix of speed and accuracy," notes Nelson.

Jeff Burton, AutoProbe Technologies President, says, "Quality data input for today's emerging big data analysis systems begins with the soil. Variable rate technology recommendations for fertilizer and seed rely heavily on soil sample analysis data. Improving this process is paramount to decreasing costs and increasing yields for growers. Otherwise, it's just garbage in - garbage out. AutoProbe provides the highest quality samples while operating in adverse conditions as the operator manages the quality control process from a climate-conditioned cab."

AutoProbe Technologies was founded and it’s core principles are based on Jim Burton’s vision of providing growers with the highest quality soil data to enable growers to make the best management decisions on an acre-by-acre basis. After a decade of development AutoProbe has matured as a tool that can be deployed by any grower or consultant committed to gathering the highest quality soil information for their farm or clients.
