Field Grain Analysis

The field grain analysis service from SOYL and Frontier Agriculture gives a real insight into how efficiently the nitrogen you’ve applied to your crops is being used.

Unlike our standard grain sampling which assesses the best target market for your grain based on its specifications, the field grain analysis service takes a deeper look at the nutrient uptake of your crops to optimise your application rates and maximise crop performance next season.

Full nutrient analysis

Our field grain analysis provides a breakdown of the nutrients in your crop in a detailed report which covers the following:

  Nitrogen

Sulphur

Manganese

Calcium

Phosphorous

Magnesium

 Zinc

 Iron

Potassium

Copper

Boron

Molybdenum*

  
*Molybdenum analysis is charged separately as an optional extra.

 

Informed nutrient planning

As well as an understanding of the nutrients within your crop, the grain analysis report will interpret the results so that you can take actionable steps to amend future fertiliser programmes as needed for the following season.

Nitrogen use efficiency – The report will measure how much nitrogen was in the harvested grain against how much nitrogen was applied to the crop to determine your nitrogen use efficiency (NUE). This data can be used in future crop nutrition planning and also for assessing your carbon footprint. 

An NUE of less than 60% is a strong indication that your current nitrogen strategy wasn’t at the optimum and adjustments should be considered.

Grain quality – The report will compare your grain protein levels against the optimum for your chosen market and then provide an adjustment to your historic nitrogen applications for next season. You will receive an overview which will advise whether you have over- or under-fertilised based on your current grain protein compared to the target levels.

Nitrogen offtake – The percentage of nitrogen in your grain and overall yield is assessed to calculate how much nitrogen was removed in the crop.
P and K offtake – The percentage of phosphorous and potassium in your grain is used to calculate offtake per tonne of yield. If these results are higher or lower than the standard RB209 figures, then your P and K recommendations can be improved.
