field-level soil map for Africa.
We've built the first field-level soil map for Africa, with 20+ soil properties estimated at 30m resolution for the entire continent.
This open resource is used globally by researchers, startups, agribusiness and governments to produce advisory and analysis, and it powers Virtual Agronomist to allow advice to be given with or without a soil test.
