  • Soil Sampling: The process of collecting soil samples from various depths for analysis.
  • Push Depth: The depth to which a soil core is pushed into the ground during sampling.
  • Soil Core: A cylindrical section of soil extracted from the ground, representing various layers of soil composition.
  • Compaction: The process by which soil particles are pressed together, reducing the pore space between them. This can affect the soil’s ability to hold water and support plant growth.
  • Decompaction: The process of loosening compacted soil, which can occur naturally or through human intervention.
  • Soil Moisture: The amount of water contained within soil particles, which can affect soil compaction and the ease of core extraction.
  • Topsoil: The uppermost layer of soil, which is typically richer in organic matter and nutrients.
  • Subsoil: The layer of soil beneath the topsoil, often containing fewer organic materials but playing a crucial role in water and nutrient movement.
  • Parent Material: The underlying geological material (generally bedrock or a superficial or drift deposit) in which soil horizons form.
  • Bedrock: The solid rock beneath the soil and superficial material.
  • Bulk Density: A measure of soil compaction, representing the mass of soil in a given volume.
  • Carbon Estimation Area (CEA): A designated area for estimating the amount of carbon stored in the soil.
  • Sampling Plan: A detailed plan outlining the approach for soil sampling, including locations, depths, and methods.
  • Farm Lab App: A digital tool used for recording and analyzing soil sample data.
  • Hydraulic System: A mechanism often used in soil sampling equipment to drive the core into the ground.
  • Sandy Soil: Soil composed mostly of sand particles, known for its loose structure and high drainage capacity.
  • Clay Soil: Soil with fine-textured particles and a tendency to retain water, often leading to compaction.
  • Soil Texture: The feel or composition of the soil, determined by the size of its particles (sand, silt, and clay).
  • Gravel Layer: A soil layer containing a significant amount of gravel, which can affect soil texture and drainage.
  • Soil Profile: A vertical section of the soil from the ground surface downwards to where the soil meets the underlying rock.
  • Sample: Physical material to be sent for testing, which can relate to soil, water, or plant samples.
  • Coordinate Reference System: A framework used to measure locations as coordinates.
  • Qmap Field: A customizable mobile form and infield data capture attached to a georeferenced point, which records additional data.
  • Metadata: A set of data that describes and gives information about other data.
  • Sample Batch: A group of samples submitted at the same time for the same test to the same lab.
  • Composite Samples: When many samples from different points are combined together to create one sample from multiple locations.
  • User or ‘Client’: Each individual that uses the software for various purposes such as sampling, submitting samples, or using analytics.
  • Account: An entity that a user belongs to, used for billing and payment. A user can belong to many accounts, and many users can belong to the same account.
  • Lab Portal: The website used to receipt, submit, and search for samples.
  • Barcode: A unique identifier for a sample that binds the geolocation to the result data. Can be generated or scanned.
  • Default Map Layer: A view type of the landscape that changes the level of detail on the map. The more detail on the layer, the higher the workload. Pre-loading the layer in the office before heading out in the field can be beneficial.
  • Boundary Type: Gives the user the option to view the Farm Boundary for further orientation in the field.
  • Sample Submission: Forwards the user to the web application sample submission screen.
  • Data Sync: Syncs all infield collected data to the cloud. Requires good reception for effective performance.
  • Farmlab Profile: Shows the user’s account and personal information.
  • List View: A feature where users can list all planned points.
  • Map View: Displays the boundary and sample points on a map.
