University of Missouri-Columbia Key Developments
DuPont, University of Missouri and USDA-ARS Collaborate on Soil Mapping
Feb 21 14
DuPont Pioneer, the University of Missouri and the US Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service have announced a new collaboration to pool soil mapping resources, predictive technologies and expertise to help growers sustainably improve crop yields through better nitrogen application management and other field input planning. The public-private effort aims to enhance sustainable crop production through field and crop modeling that targets the specific soil, climatic, water-shed and production conditions within producers fields with real-time information. The three-year exclusive agreement among DuPont Pioneer - the University of Missouri and USDA-ARS will bring together the respective strengths of each party in precision agriculture sensors and soil mapping, including the characterization of soil types, topography and water-sheds. Through a unique computerized process offered by DuPont that uses the latest high resolution technology, the collaboration will result in more accurate soil mapping units. Higher-resolution soil information will enable improved placement and management of crop inputs such as nitrogen fertilizer. The enhanced soil maps build on public soil survey data and will support Decision Agriculture Services provided by DuPont to help crop producers make timely decisions to more sustainably improve yields and per-acre income. Soil analysis procedures will better identify unique land areas called Environmental Response Units (ERUs). These ERUs can then be used to develop a variety of management zones. A trusted Pioneer advisor will assist growers in tailoring input and management plans to fit their goals of the best possible per-acre yield. This University of Missouri and USDA-ARS collaboration will provide vastly improved soil mapping resolution.
