Benefits of Field Services
Our field services redefine the way growers and agricultural retailers operate, saving both money and time in the field. By utilizing cutting-edge technology and industry expertise, we streamline and optimize various processes, from soil sampling to data collection and analysis. This efficiency not only reduces operational costs but also minimizes downtime, enabling you to make quicker, data-driven decisions.
Field service solutions tailored for your business
Soil Fertility Sampling
Make Deveron your trusted soil sampling partner. A regularly scheduled soil sampling program will help you apply crop nutrients where they are needed.
Choose the best sampling method for your farm:
- Bulk – 10 ac. 25 ac. 50 ac.
- Grid – 1 ac. 2.5 ac. 5 ac.
- Zone – 2.5 ac. 5 ac. 10 ac.
- Soil Mapping – SoilOptix® and Veris® EC
- Custom sampling resolutions available
SoilOptix® is a one-of-a-kind, premium top soil analysis system that sets the standard for accuracy and precision in agriculture; a value-added layer that fits into the everyday management decisions growers make on their fields.
Agriculture Drone Services
Deveron’s drone services for agriculture provide in-season imagery and analysis for variable rate applications, land management and research programs.
We offer both aerial and satellite imagery options to give you timely and high resolution imagery solutions for you to make actionable decisions throughout the season.
Field Boundary Mapping
Deveron’s Field Boundary Mapping Services provide growers a holistic view of their arable field canvas, enabling them to strategize irrigation, planting, and harvesting with unwavering precision.
Plant Tissue Sampling
Tissue testing is used to determine crop uptake and
limiting nutrients during key growth stages through out
the growing season.
Tissue results allow for in season adjustments to prevent
nutrient deficiencies and maximize yield potential.
Soil Sampling FAQs
A: Fertility – we strive for 5-10 days from order to collection and soil results received from lab and delivered to client.
Carbon – we can be in the field collecting within a week of jobs being ordered. Depending on the size of the project, length of time to collect varies. Soil Results can be delivered back to client within 60-90 days of collection.
A: Results can be sent to you via a CSV or PDF via email.
In some regions, results can be accessed through an online portal
A: OM, pH, Buffer pH, CEC, P, K, Mg, Ca, K%, Mg%, CA%
A: In the U.S: Upper Midwest (MN, SD, IA, WI, IN, MO, IL) we also have coverage in (KS, AR, MS, TN, OH, MI)
In Canada: The maritimes (P.E.I, NS, NB), Ontario, western Quebec, southern Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta.

A: We sample fertility at 6” and have the capability to go down to 24″ with options to sample to 3′ (1-meter)

A: Soil sampling can tell you a lot about what is happening in the field. It can tell you what the nutrient levels are in various zones/polygons throughout the farm. It can answer questions on yield impact and how much fertilizer do you actually need to put down and where. Depending on the level of sampling being completed you can see what your macronutrients, micronutrients and even water holding capacity, just to name a few.
A: Grid sampling on the larger scale can start to capture some variability and produce an overall nutrient level of a field by section but it is hard to narrow down specific nutrient levels by soil characteristic. Grid sampling can average test results across dissimilar soil types, mixing soils that should be kept separate and is also susceptible to mixing uneven fertilizer applications or a variety of other environmental factors. For instance, one grid could have a mix of sand and clay soil. The test results would average the nutrient amounts across that block and lead to a misapplication of fertilizer based on the soil type.
Polygon soil sampling is done to obtain a better understanding of the variability of the field. It also uses the information gathered to determine the specific nutrient levels per polygon area and which ones need adjustments. It is important to ensure that each sampling area is uniform and separate from areas that are obviously different.
A: For fertility we use a number of softwares. We can work with the client if they have a preferred platform.
In Canada we work in Sirrus (Proagrica) and Agrian.
In the US we work in Sirrus, EFC and CropTrak.
A: Depending on the amount of travel required to the fields or in between fields, we can sample 300-400 acres per day for 2.5 ac grid and up to 1000-1200 acres per day for bulk sample, this varies depending on size of field.
A: Yes we do driven boundary mapping and perimeter mapping. Perimeter mapping is used for dyke systems, berms, harvested crop (tobacco, sod, etc). We are exploring utilizing drone RTK for boundary mapping.
