Join thousands of farmers around the world using SWAT MAPS on their farm.

SWAT RECORDS is a huge advancement in record keeping and logistics around our farm. I wouldn’t want to farm without it!
- Jeff P.
We have been using this technology on our farm for ten years. Best maps in the industry in my opinion. Very practical and logical approach to variable rate seed and fertilizer.

Let's Start From The Top

What are SWAT MAPS?

Soil, Water, and Topography (SWAT) MAPS are high-resolution soil foundation maps used to execute variable rate fertilizer, seed, soil amendment, pesticide, or precision water management. They are created using our patented process.

Soil

Factors such as soil texture, organic matter, topsoil depth, and salinity can all impact yield and fertilizer response.

Water

Water has the biggest influence on yield and fertilizer response. SWAT MAPS categorizes dry and wet areas in your field into ten different management zones.

Topography

Topography is described by landscape positions in a field (hilltops, mid-slopes, and depressions). Topography can influence soil moisture, erosion, organic matter levels, pH, and soil fertility levels.

The SWAT MAPS Layers

Topography

Topography is a detailed representation of the natural shapes and features in your field(s), including hills or knolls, mid-slopes, and depression areas that determine where water sheds or collects.

Organic Matter

Soil organic matter is the component of your soil that consists of plant and animal tissue at various stages of decomposition, substances that soil microbes synthesize. It is important for water holding capacity and nutrient supply in season.

Water Flow Paths

Water flow paths show the direction that water will flow in your field(s).

Elevation

Elevation maps show your field's distance above sea level. It is used to determine water flow paths, water accumulation, and as a base layer for a topography model.

Electrical Conductivity

Electrical conductivity (EC) is related to the variability of dissolved salts, moisture, and texture differences in your soil.

The SWAT Zones

All SWAT MAPS are made up of ten zones. Having 10 different zones accommodates variability in your field.
Hide All ZonesShow All Zones
Zones 1 & 2
Eroded knolls, hills, sandy soils, lower organic matter, dry areas (water shedding).

More praise from real people using SWAT MAPS on their farm.

We farm a variety of soil types and topography usually in the same field and SWAT MAPS have really helped us improve plant stands and crop maturity across those fields. Crop grades, grain moisture, and straw management have all improved with VR seeding and fertility.”
- Rob D.
They have a really strong map. Dad said it best… "I have been going over that land for the last 40 years and I couldn’t have drawn it better myself."
- Jeff B.
