Introducing: Contour Lime Planning


JULY, 2024

Release Notes

The new Contour Lime Planner is now available, enabling farmers and their advisors to make pH corrections quickly and easily. Users can create a complete lime plan for the whole farm in one simple flow that offers precision, flexibility, and control.

Lime plans can be created for all growers, regardless of whether the farm has been variable mapped or not. The smart lime planning tools allows growers and advisers to build a plan no matter whether pH samples are zonal, whole field or hand-drawn polygons. The tool can process these maps and give an accurate product requirement, job sheets for operators or contractors and GPS files for VR applications.

An easy-to-use bulk adjustment tool allows for quick quantity changes in order to match your plans to bulk delivery loads or bagged products.

  • All plans for the selected farm are displayed across all years to allow for rotational planning
  • Multiple plans can be created per farm and season
  • View a pH map, alongside minimum pH and field average pH values to understand pH variation across the farm
  • Last analysed dates can be viewed from the field list or map, to help ensure that plans are using the most recent data
  • Target pH can be set at a farm, crop or individual field level
  • A smart VR planning calculator varies rates to meet target pH across different sample zones
  • Custom products allow users to plan with different product quality or Neutralising Value
  • Draw custom application rate polygons
  • Create multiple applications with split timings, such as autumn or spring applied
  • Jobsheet & GPS file download
