Josef Höckmeier


Hallertau, Bavaria
Crops: grassland (fodder and biogas plant)
Agricultural area: 400 ha
“In Hallertau, we manage a farm with around 400 hectares of agriculture, animal husbandry and our own biogas plant. Because we are very much in the red zone under the new fertilization ordinance, we have decided to invest in site-specific fertilization in order to increase the efficiency of nitrogen. With the ISARIA plant sensor in conjunction with our slurry tank plus NIR sensor, we have the opportunity to use nutrients even more efficiently on our fields. We have been working with yield potential cards for three years now. The combination of yield potential maps and ISARIA plant sensor has proven successful for us. Through the maps, I can see the history of recent years and, with the help of the ISARIA sensor, the current situation. ”

Jacob van den Borne


Aardappelen, The Netherlands
Crops: potato, corn, sugar beet
Agricultural area: 550 ha
“I have extensively tested all common sensor systems at my company. The ISARIA completely convinced me because of its exact measurement accuracy and its independence from solar radiation and rain. That's why I now also use it to kill my potatoes. I was only able to see measurably higher yields with ISARIA; I don't use anything else anymore. ”

Phillip Krainbring


Wanzleben-Börde, Saxony-Anhalt
Crops: rapeseed, maize
Agricultural area: 440 ha
“As early as autumn at the end of the vegetation, I drove through the stocks with the ISARIA PRO Compact to measure the nitrogen uptake in rapeseed. I made fertilization cards from the scans. This allows me to see which areas have absorbed more or less nitrogen and which areas are receiving a little more or less fertilizer. This enables me to better distribute the fertiliser over the area and use it effectively. The more I study it, the more valuable I find this tool. But it doesn't replace my work. I have to look carefully at the maps and decide how to adjust my fertilization and why - do the poorly developed areas get more or less fertilizer? Once you have decided on a fertilization strategy and everything is set, the spreading process is almost automatic. ”
