AGVISE Laboratories is always trying to make soil sampling easier. Since 2011, AGVISE customers have enjoyed submitting soil samples online through our AGVISOR platform. AGVISOR is the online platform that allows you to submit soil samples (conventional, grid/zone, and soybean cyst nematode samples); save grower and field information (so you don’t have to fill it in by hand on paper forms); and set default crop fertilizer guidelines. With online submission, you simply submit the sample information online and print barcode reference number stickers to place on each soil sample bag (like below). There is no more handwriting on soil sample bags or forms anymore!
With the online AGVISOR platform, organizing your sampling operation is easy. You can save time by submitting soil samples ahead of time and printing reference number stickers before the fall soil sampling rush begins. If you are working with a third-party sampler, you can submit samples online and then email a PDF of the barcode reference stickers to the sampler, allowing them to print the stickers at their location.
In addition to submitting samples online, the AGVISOR platform allows you to view, print, and save soil test reports. This means you can save soil test reports and send them as PDFs to growers. AGVISOR also allows you to change crop choice, yield goal, and fertilizer guideline type (broadcast vs. band). The flexibility of the platform makes it easy to keep up with changes that inevitably happen in farming.
If you have any questions on how to access AGVISOR or need help navigating the online submission and results platform, please give one of our Laboratories (Northwood 701-587-6010; Benson 320-843-4109) a call and our technical staff will be happy to help you.
