Ballance Agri-Nutrients farm mapping services

Ballance Agri-Nutrients is New Zealand’s largest fertiliser manufacturing and supply company. In 2017, we were awarded the contract as Ballance’s sole national provider for farm mapping.

The issue

Ballance had developed a web-based system, which enables farmers to capture and analyse information. The foundation of this application is an accurate and current farm map – and they were having ongoing issues with accuracy of data.

Our solution

In 2017 GPS-it was awarded the contact as Ballance’s sole national provider for farm mapping. Using a special aerial photography equipment, we can quickly capture large scale imagery without sacrificing the quality or clarity of the images. When then process the images and add the farm features.

The outcome

The customer receives a highly accurate farm map to ensure precision farming and can also choose a variety of consumables to support their farming practices.

“GPS-it’s ability to translate our in-field requirements into effective technology is invaluable and they have become a key partner for Ballance Agri-Nutrients.”
