Solutions for the Ag-Technology Specialist
Much of the frustration felt by field technicians working in agriculture is caused by the fact, there have never been tools to allow them to properly diagnose problems with all types of ag-electronics they encounter and are expected to fix.
The industry calls it swap-tronics. Change the parts until it works!
Allow your technical people the tools they need to get the job done in as little time as possible and at the lowest possible cost. Eliminate false parts replacement. Stop wasted time!
We are building test equipment to address the needs of these field technicians.
The designs are based on my 40 years plus as a field tech working in agriculture. Our Testers are complete in functionality yet easy to use. Visit agtester.com for all the details!
Additionally for manufacturers; we build custom field test equipment to fit your requirements!
Check out our web site agtester.com! Videos will show you the product line in action! http://www.agtester.com/#overviewvid is the link to the first video. Others in the products page!

In Agriculture all things begin with one thing, the soil. That is still true; however, there is a caveat that changes everything: knowledge about the soil. The ability to analyze soil composition is nothing new what isnew is the AutoProbe. Every other method of gathering soil, in order to have the best and most complete understanding of the soil, is obsolete.
Simply put, there is nothing like the AutoProbe but the AutoProbe. After nine years of testing and proof in the field, there is no reason that the AutoProbe cannot pulling fifty cores per minute that?s pulling a soil core every 8.5 feet while cruising at five miles per hour. The AutoProbe is capable of sampling a 2.5 acre grid on the go, delivering 40 cores in 45 seconds into the tractor cab without stopping. That is 3X faster than manual core sampling and 10X more accurate; AND IT?S REPEATABLE YEAR TO YEAR!
In the coming years soil is not only the Alpha; it is the Omega. Knowing how to be a good steward of the soil has always been in the interest of growers. But the future of good stewardship hinges on precision and accuracy. There is not another machine on the market that can compete with the PATENTED AutoProbe: the most intensive, accurate, and repeatable soil-sampling machine on earth. It is capable of pulling consistent 6 cores every 8.5 feet inside grids, zones or any other sampling scheme imaginable. FOR DATA INTEGRITRY, RESULTS AND RESPONSIBLE STEWARDSHIP, THERE IS ONLY ONE MACHINE: AUTOPROBE.
You can see the AutoProbe in action at www.autoprobe.ag
