Multi Sensor Soil Sensing Tool for Farmland in Spain
Medusa developed an efficient and effective soil sensing system (gamma-ray and GPR) on a 4x4 car to be able to measure >100 fields, 300 ha throughout the north of Spain in 3 weeks. The sensing data was combined with open data (DEM, geology) and soil sampling results (by UPM) to acquire information about soil texture, soil organic matter, tillage layer depth, compaction, altitude, slope, nutrients. This provided a good understanding of the soils and is a powerful communication tool for farmers and agronomists.
