Soil EC

Soil EC is soil electrical conductivity – a measurement of how much electrical current soil conducts. It’s an effective way to map soil texture because smaller soil particles such as clay conduct more current than larger silt and sand particles.

OpticMapper & Soil OM

The OpticMapper is an optical sensor that measures soil reflectance. Soils that are higher in organic matter (OM) absorb more light, but can also appear darker when moist.

pH Manager and Soil pH

Veris offers the world’s only on-the-go pH sensing system – the pH Manager. Used in conjunction with EC and/or OM sensing, either two or three critical soil properties are mapped simultaneously.

How we can help you and your soil

With the precision provided by Veris® Technologies on-the-go soil sensors you can accurately
and intensively map soil variability – giving you the information you need to get the most out of your soils.


Soil EC

Maps define soil texture variability by measuring electrical conductivity of the soil. Clay particles conduct more current than silt and sand.


Soil OM

Maps are created by measuring soil’s reflectance at two wavelengths under the surface.

Soil pH

Readings are taken on-the-go providing 20-25 samples per hectare, required for a precise lime map.

  • “It was concluded that a grid spacing of 96 ft or less would be required to adequately assess the spatial variation of phosphorous and potassium and soil pH. Sampling at this intensity would require approximately 11 times as many soil samples as the commonly used 1/2 acre grid.”

  • “Soil pH varied from 5.4 to 8.0 over distances of about 480 ft in most transects. In some sections, soil pH varied about 2 pH units over a 40 ft distance…”

  • “Usually we would put 70 tonne of lime on a paddock that size. After the measurements were done we ended up only needing to put on 10 tonne of lime. It’s a significant difference and so much more accurate. It’s a saving by not having to apply so much lime but what we are really striving for is better crop yields and having the right pH level helps increase the outputs per hectare.”
