With Agworld’s footprint rapidly expanding in the Midwest, an increasing number of growers asked us to create a data integration with MVTL - Minnesota Valley Testing Laboratories. MVTL is a full-service agricultural testing laboratory with locations in New Ulm, MN, Nevada, IA and Bismarck, ND. MVTL provides both crop science and animal science testing services and counts many crop consultants, ag retailers, farmers, animal nutritionists and veterinarians as its clients.
The integration between MVTL and Agworld is live and ready to be used just like any other laboratory that is integrated with Agworld, with users able to use the integration for both single-depth and multi-depth samples.
The Agworld sampling workflow is created to assist growers and their advisors with their automatic sampling activities for which they use the Agworld app on their iPad when in the field. Before starting the automated sampling process, Agworld users can create sampling jobs from the Agworld website. Here they select point or grid sampling, select the fields that it’s relevant to and set the measurements (e.g. grid size, sampling depth). Before creating and assigning out the sampling jobs users can choose a laboratory, such as MVTL, so that when a sampler completes a sampling job, the laboratory automatically gets notified with the sampling job information and the sample location for each barcode. For more information, see the tutorial below.
Once MVTL has processed the samples, the results automatically get uploaded into Agworld. If a user has chosen to process the results for precision, the results can be turned into a prescription after coming back into Agworld.
Agworld continually works on expanding the number of testing laboratories and other partners that are integrated with the Agworld ecosystem in order to cater for the demand of our expanding customer base. Agworld clients save a lot of time on processing their soil samples and they consistently tell us that we’re making their autumn routines a lot more simple. I’d love to make sure that you experience these same benefits this autumn - so please give me a call on +1 724 249 6753 if you have any questions or if you’d like some additional training on soil sampling with Agworld!
