High Resolution Imagery 
Did you know you can place imagery orders with SOILMAP? Simply let us know your field maps code and resolution and let us take care of the rest. You will receive an e-mail (files) when the imagery is complete.

Resolution options are .25, .50, and 1 Meter resolution.

 Why purchase imagery?:

You can also use imagery to make in season recommendations. Using the Management Zones tool sets you can turn imagery into an application file. With SOILMAP, you have full control to manipulate the zones you create based on the images you receive.


Fall Considerations 
Now is a great time to consider updates to your grid sampling books or company equations.  We will be handing out Re-Grid reports at the summer user conference, but let us know if you would prefer to receive them at an earlier date. You can also run this report yourself in SOILMAP. It is listed as 'Company Field Sample Analysis'.

* When looking at your fields in SOILMAP you can also easily tell based on the color of the stars as to when a field was last sampled.
Aerial Application - Sensitive Crops
As aerial application season starts, we just want to remind everyone of the Aerial Application feature. When creating a blend sheet for the Aerial Application blender, the 5th page will contain a sensitive crops listing.  This report is linked to the sensitive crop registry. It is important to note that unregistered and incorrectly registered sensitive crops will not show in this list. 

In the below example you can see the specifics about this sensitive crop including crop, location, phone number and on-site manager.
