Farmer-invented automated soil sampler reduces human error

A North Carolina farmer has developed a mobile soil sampling system with virtually no risk of human error, Southeast Farm Press reported . Allan Baucom, a grain and cotton farmer with more than 6,000 acres around Monroe, N.C., built the automated soil sampler to keep up with his expanding agricultural operations -- and growing variety of soil types. Named “the Falcon”, the sampler can take up to 12 samples and once, and store 200 before being unloaded. Two Falcons currently exist: one works Baucom’s farm, while the other operates on farms around the country to ensure the sampler’s efficiency in different environments. The sampler is expected to be made available soon, and will host new features, such as computer-interfaced electronic system for use with a laptop or tablet.

Bottom Composition Matters, Underwater Cameras Can Help

As a pro angler, I use my Lowrance electronics every single time I am on the water. They are great at locating fish and structure, but when combined with my FishSens SondeCAM HD Underwater Camera they can show everything. A camera is a great tool for someone who wants to better understand what they are seeing on their electronics and for me, it helps get a clear picture of one of the most important things in bass fishing: bottom composition. Hard Spots Hard bottoms are usually the best, and bass will relate to hard bottoms of different types depending on the region. My Lowrance StructureScan will show hard bottoms as bright, white areas on the screen where softer bottoms will be more grayish.

Targeting Spawning Bass: Are They Going to Bite?

This time of year, anglers all over are fishing for bass they can see in the shallows. Some bass will be easy to catch and some are nearly impossible, like those that are in the act of spawning instead of just guarding their beds. There are a few things that I do to determine if the fish is going to bite and if they are worth spending time fishing for. Locating Bedding Bass One of the best ways to find bedding bass is to cruise the shallows with your trolling motor at about 40 or 50%. I have found that this is the best speed to both cover water and avoid spooking fish. Anything faster will scare fish away long before you get to them.
