Waters Agricultural Laboratories was built on the principles of Precision Agriculture. Beginning in 1976, Waters Lab began analyzing grid samples and producing color-coded maps by hand. After more than 38 years of Precision Agriculture experience, we are the leader in precision ag services. Waters Agricultural Laboratories has a fully staffed GIS mapping department utilizing the latest technology and software. We also provide a host of services designed to support your precision ag program. Mapping and Precision Ag services are available at all three locations.
From the solid foundation of our laboratory services, we have constructed a Precision Ag Department combining lab analyses and recommendations with GPS data to create custom application maps. We then output the data in a variety of formats compatible with most application equipment. In addition, we provide hardbound map books containing field boundaries, sampling maps, full color maps for each element, application maps and soil sample reports. Application files are sent via email, Sling Shot, or loaded directly onto your flash drive.
Let us do the inside office work for you so you can be in the field with your customers getting the outside work done.
