Abstract: In the vineyard of the American Farm School, three soil mapping techniques are employed to analyze soil properties. Firstly, soil samples are collected and analyzed in the laboratory to determine nutrient levels, pH, and texture. Secondly, remote sensing technologies like satellite imagery and aerial drones are used to gather data on soil moisture content and vegetation indices. Lastly, on-site sensors measure real-time soil parameters such as temperature and moisture. By comparing these methods, the farm aims to create a comprehensive soil map for effective irrigation and enhanced productivity. This collaboration with precision agriculture and climate change regulation can positively impact production and mitigate the potential effects of climate change.
