PRECISION PASTURES IS A LEADING AUSTRALIAN
GPS MAPPING AND SOIL ANALYSIS CONSULTANCY

Precision Pastures provides soil testing and agronomic advice to livestock farmers and the wider agricultural industry. We use the latest GPS and spatial technology to help you maximise your pasture’s potential, including soil zone mapping, digital mapping surveys, electromagnetic soil surveys and core soil sampling and testing.

After we test, we’ll give you (or your preferred agronomist) high-quality data and recommendations to inform on-farm decisions about optimal pasture production, carbon sequestration, soil health, stocking rates, chemical and fertiliser applications and water use efficiency.

And because our approach is scalable to fit any project scope, we can offer precision agriculture insights at a cost-effective price to operations of all sizes — from large agricultural businesses to small, family-owned farms.
