Thanks in part to a collaboration with researchers at Niagara College, Canadian top soil mapping company SoilOptix® Inc has gone global. The company first approached Niagara College’s Research & Innovation division for help with a research project in 2017, which led to an ongoing partnership with the Horticultural & Environmental Sciences Innovation Centre at the college. The SoilOptix® technology, which provides detailed, high-definition soil maps with the help of high-definition sensors, was launched in Europe in 2022 under the Interra® Scan brand.

SoilOptix®, a high-definition top-soil mapping company in Ontario, uses precision agriculture technology to help farmers understand and improve the distribution of nutrient and texture in their fields.

SoilOptix® is now in a position of obtaining global reach with their technology, in part due to their collaboration with the NC research team through precision agriculture, GIS tech and data automation, which created process efficiencies of immense proportions and a user-friendly interface for customers.

“One of our best-kept secrets to our success has been this working relationship with Niagara College’s Horticultural & Environmental Sciences Innovation Centre. … The success has been so strong that it has carried through to the opportunity to hiring several students full-time.”
– Paul Raymer, SoilOptix® co-founder and president
