How we help you grow

Our flagship soil analysis for corn and soybeans provides a biological profile of your field to inform crop protection, nutrient management, and soil health decisions

Predict pest & disease pressure

Spend on protection where you need it, save on input costs where you don't

Corn Rootworm

Manage Trait & Insecticide Spend

Every year, 60% of corn fields are planted with a Bt trait for rootworm, but only 10-15% of fields face economic pressure. Pattern Ag’s Decision Dashboard can detect a single rootworm egg in a 1lb soil sample. Use this information to spend where you need the protection, and save on inputs where you don't.

Rootworm analysis available as a standalone Pressure Panel

Soybean Cyst Nematode (SCN)

Know when to Select a peking variety or apply nematicide to manage for SCN resistance

SCN is everywhere, and symptoms often go unnoticed, causing billions in yield loss. Pattern Ag's Decision Dashboard is the first soil test to map SCN pressure across an entire field, with sensitivity down to a single cyst in a 1lb soil sample. Use this information to spend where you need the protection, and save on inputs where you don't.

SCN analysis available as a standalone Pressure Panel

Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS)

Find the fields where a premium Seed treatment will have a positive ROI

SDS and SCN are often found together causing substantial yield loss. Pattern Ag's Decision Dashboard is the first of its kind to quantify SDS pressure before you plant, so you can predict and plan with confidence.

Seedling Disease & Root Rot

Increase your Rate of Treatment on at risk fields to protect your yield potential

Seedling disease and root rot can result in poor stand counts, and stunt early season growth. Pattern Ag's Decision Dashboard is the first soil test to quantify your pressure so you can choose the right seed, with the right treatment, planted at the right time and place.

Enhance biofertility & soil attributes

Work with your soil biology to fix nitrogen, and make existing nutrients plant available

Nitrogen Fixation

Find the fields that need an inoculant to boost the Nitrogen available To your soybeans

Rhizobia and other microbes in the soil can help to fix nitrogen and make it plant available. Pattern Ag's Decision Dashboard can show you the fields in need of inoculant, so you can be sure your soybeans get the nutrients they need.

Denitrification

Avoid costly Nitrogen loss

Nitrosomonas and other denitrifying bacteria will increase nitrogen loss in your soil. Pattern Ag's Decision Dashboard can tell you which fields are at highest risk for nitrogen loss, so you can know where a nitrogen stabilizer is needed.

Phosphorus Solubilization

Maximize plant availability of Phosphorous

The average field has more than enough Phosphorous, but most is not plant available. Microbes play a key role in unlocking Phosphorous previously locked up in the soil. Pattern Ag's Decision Dashboard can tell you whether you've got enough of these microbes working for you, and where you might benefit from additional amendments or biological applications.

Select Soil Attributes

Optimize soil attributes to enhance plant availability of nutrients

Microbes in your soil tell us a lot about the soil environment. Using this information, Pattern Ag's Decision Dashboard models the pH, CEC, OM, and other important nutrients in your fields so you can adjust your management accordingly.

Promote beneficial microbes

Track and amend your soil biology to support plant growth and productivity

Plant Growth Promotion

stimulate early plant growth and vigor

Certain microbes release hormones that increase root development and above ground growth, while stimulating a plant's natural defenses. The right mix of these microbes can make a big difference to yield. Pattern Ag's Decision Dashboard can show you where you might benefit from additional treatments or amendments.

Soil Health Indicators

ENsure a balanced and healthy growing environment

Certain microbial communities act as indicators of soil health, like gram +/- bacteria, and anaerobic microbes. Pattern Ag's Decision Dashboard tracks these microbes in your fields so you can quantify soil health and decide if amendments or management changes will pay.

Sample Soil

Pattern Ag will handle all the details to get your fields sampled, and sent to our lab.

Make Key Decisions

Our analysis uses biological markers to inform everything from pest and disease risk, to nutrient management strategies

Our Results

Insights at every level

We can display microbial insights at a sub-field, field, and operation level, while providing relevant benchmarks to help you interpret and act on the results

Our Footprint

We've got the Midwest covered

Pattern Ag offers our services throughout the Midwest, with a particular focus on Corn and Soybeans

Once we saw the Soybean Cyst and SDS pressure, we knew it had to be planted to Corn. Margins are too tight to place the wrong crop in the wrong field.

IA Farmer

The Pressure Panel helped us select the right corn and soybean products based on the SCN and Corn Rootworm findings.

I believe this will be the next key layer to increase yields using less inputs on my farm.

I would have never made the investment to treat the soybeans going into the season had I not known what was living in my soil.
