Pedological study & mapping

Soil fertility


Bureau Veritas’ laboratories helping to  optimise agricultural efficiencies

Beyond analytical services, we interpret your testing results and we offer personalized advice to support you to choose the fertilization program that would be better to optimize your results.

Discover : Field trial monitoring by Scanner

  • Soil Electro Conductivity

    Measures soil texture variability deep into the profile.

  • Soil OM

    Measures soil organic matter using optical sensors.

  • PH

    pH measurement at 5 or 7 cm in the ground 1 measurement / acre

  • Topography

    Based on GPS, scanners register topography, tanking into consideration altitudes, slopes and curves.

From measure to soil map

  1. The scanner is tracted and collects data.
  2. We have -at this stage- gradientmaps.
  3. With soil analyses, Sensor data is calibrated and smoothed. We can calibrate our different maps (CEC, OM, P&K….)


« Water Management » maps:

  • Precision irrigation tools.
  • Optimization of probes positioning

Plant protection products variable rates

  • Herbicides related to OM
  • CEPP action (French registration)

Pest risk maps:

  • Any pest related to soil criterias (texture, OM, Topography)
  • Ex: rhizoctonia on Sugarbeet

Nitrogen variable rate based on an algo which fuses OM, CEC and topography map
