Reflectance Spectroscopy for Soils and Crops Research – See it at the ASD booth at ICPA!

July 09, 2012

Reflectance spectroscopy offers a versatile and precise way to extract important information from soils and crops. ASD’s FieldSpec 4 and HandHeld 2 instruments are valuable tools to researchers in the field of precision agriculture.

Researchers already use this method to assess soil fertility and crop nutrients analysis. They are attracted to the portability, non-destructive measurement, and immediate lab-quality results that our spectroradiometers provide.

Add sophisticated calibration modeling by our SummitCAL experts to create a full crop and soils analysis solution.

Soil applications include total carbon levels and carbonate levels. Crop applications include nitrogen status, soil fertility and water status.
crops and soil analysis
Examples of constituents ASD instrumentation can measure:  
- Moisture
- Total carbon/Inorganic carbon
- Total nitrogen/Mineralized nitrogen
- Clay/Silt/Sand
- Soil organic matter
- Cation-Exchange Capacity (CEC)
- pH

Check out our spectroradiometers and related crops and soils applications at the ICPA Conference in Indianapolis, July 15 – 18. ASD’s booth number is 12.
