The Sensors

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. Regardless of your agronomic needs and equipment capabilities, Veris has a platform that fits you.


Most popular, powerful model. Maps EC at 2-3 depths, OM and pH on-the-go.

U Series

Maps soil EC, OM, and pH behind a UTV. Uses SpeedRead™ pH technology to take pH readings in ~10 sec.

Q Series

Light weight soil EC sensor platform easily pulled by ATVs, allowing for rapid field scanning of up to 1,000 acres per day.

Mapping texture with Soil EC captures this key physical property

Soil EC is soil electrical conductivity – a measurement of how much electrical current soil can conduct. 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.

Soil organic matter

An indicator of past productivity and a driver of future yields If you want to vary inputs based on productive capacity, a precise map of organic matter is crucial. Because organic matter forms slowly over time, the soils that are higher in organic matter possess the combination of soil texture, internal drainage, landscape position, and other factors that over long periods of time have consistently generated additional plant growth -- resulting in higher OM.

Precision pH pays off

High resolution pH maps improve management of this key soil property Soil pH is an important factor in crop production. Nutrient usage, crop growth, and herbicide activity are all affected by the pH of the soil. Grid samples are simply not dense enough to do the job. Within many 2.5 acre (1ha) grids, there is a wide range of pH values, often ranging from soils that call for lime to soils that are already extremely high in pH.
