Our varied soil types in the Scottish Borders are well
suited to Soil Brightness Images and Precision Farming.
Over the last few years IPF technology has significantly
improved the efficiency of nutrient applications over all

The process of verifying the soil brightness and zoning
and relating that to our existing working knowledge of
soil type was detailed, logical and refreshingly swift.

I would recommend the approach The Courtyard Partnership take to anyone who is enthusiastic
about a pragmatic targeted approach to soil nutrition that meets their needs.

I was attracted to the IPF system as it was nothing like as expensive as others I'd looked at;
Zone-guided treatments make environmental and economic sense.
It's all been a bit like getting a new car to drive. At first it can be a bit confusing, but once you get
used to it you don't want to go back to the old one.

I thought it would take perhaps six to ten years to get where we wanted to be. But IPF have just done the first batch of our soil re-testing and I'm surprised at the evenness of the

The Courtyard Partnerships scientific based practical approach attracted me to use IPF. It really does work, thanks to their very supportive approach!

The soil analysis of the individual zones has given us a clear picture of the nutrient variation within our fields and presents a useful record to refer to when comparing yield data shown by the yield mapping system on the combine.

I have used Courtyard's IPF system for 2 years now. We have IPF zoned the farm because there is significant variation in our limestone soils.
Mr Pete Cannon - Winterwell Farm
The IPF system of involving farmers, agronomists and soil scientists alike integrates well with my inclusive approach to crop management.
IPF combines practical soil science with appropriate use of technology to give farmers and agronomists a "common language and simple tools" to discuss, plan and implement practical Variable Rate Agronomy.
