Interpretation and Benefit

Research has shown that in a dryland cropping situation EM and Gamma Radiometric surveys can help growers

  • Reward areas of high yield potential with more inputs
  • Limit resources to areas of low yield potential.
  • Save on overall fertiliser costs and increase gross margins

The information gained from the process can be used to identify variability of soils within a paddock or farm, and give farmers/consultants a better understanding of the chemical and physical characteristics of the soil.
