Predict and Protect Against Soil Borne Disease

Predict  disease pressure so you can choose the right seed, and treatment

A poor stand and stunted growth can cap your yield potential.

Pattern Ag has scanned +100,000 acres for soil borne diseases!

  • Risk varies by region and field
  • Inoculum and risk changes based on management practices and environment
  • Measure your risk so you can spend on protection where you need it, and save where you don't

Build the biofertility of your soil to maximize yield, and control costs

For farmers looking to reach the next level of yield potential, improving soil biofertility is the key

Soybean Nitrogen Fixation

Bradyrhizobium japonicum is responsible for the nodule formation on soybean roots, which will produce 50-75% of the nitrogen required for a soybean crop. This metric measures the abundance of this critical species in your soil. At low levels we recommend applying rhizobia products (inoculants) if planting into soybeans.

Denitrification Potential

Nitrosomonas and other bacteria increase nitrogen loss in soil under the right conditions. These microbes are naturally more abundant in some soils, and Pattern Ag can help you identify fields at highest risk, so you can know where a nitrogen stabilizer might help maximize nitrogen use efficiency.

Phosphorus Solubilization

The average midwest field has abundant Phosphorous, but most is tied up, unavailable to plants. Microbes play a key role in unlocking this vital nutrient, and Pattern Ag can help show you where your microbial levels are low, meaning your soil might benefit from additional amendments or biological applications.

Mycorrhizal Fungi (AMF)

Mycorrhizal fungi help expand plant root surface area, enabling your crop to access key nutrients and resources. Tillage and other practices can harm these microbial communities. Pattern Ag can show you where you need to rebuild these networks with the right biological applications.

Plant Growth Promoters

Certain species of Trichoderma are prolific producers of metabolites and enzymes that have benefits that include pathogen biocontrol, pathogen resistance in plants, and enhanced plant growth and development. Pattern Ag targets a number of these Trichoderma species that have proven to promote these beneficial impacts and provides them to you as a benchmarked abundance against relevant agronomic fields.

Anaerobic Activity

Healthy soil biology requires good aeration to breathe. When you have compaction, ponding, or a high water table, it promotes growth of anaerobic microbes that can deplete key nutrients, and overwhelm beneficial microbial communities. Monitor for anaerobic hot spots so you can identify root cause and resolve issues early.

Microbial Diversity

Soil microbial diversity is an excellent indicator of overall soil health. A number of studies have demonstrated that increased diversity is linked to beneficial plant outcomes, including increased yield. Soil microbial diversity is often increased by diversifying crop rotations. Pattern Ag provides a bacterial diversity metric benchmarked against agronomic soil diversity across the Midwestern US.
