Our client asked for the creation of permanent management zones for the deployment of lime. Our accuracy for recommended quantity reached the closest possible to ideal (1X1,25 hectares grid – 200 samples), however with a considerably lower number of soil samples (7). Our recommendation was the application of 28 tons vs 30 tons required by reference grid and 36 tons using regular 1x2,5 hectares grid.
