Nitrate leaching

Nitrate leaching is a natural event and occurs when the Nitrate leaves the soil in drainage water. Combined with the FarmQA AquaSpy to determine the depth of the watering event, the SoilScan can determine the amount of Nitrate left in the soil, so you can fertilize with precision.
