An on-the-go soil sampler for an automated soil nitrate mapping system



An on-the-go soil sampler for an automated soil nitrate mapping system



Transactions Of The Asabe: 6, 1895-1904



An automated on-the-go soil sampler was developed as part of a soil nitrate mapping system that collects data for precisely analysing small-scale variation in soil NO<sub>3</sub>-N. An essential requirement of the sampler is the ability to reliably collect a soil sample of known "weight" (mass). It was hypothesized that if a uniform bulk density sample could be collected in a device of fixed volume, then the mass of the sample would be known and constant.
