About SoilEssentials, a small business with big ambition
Jim Wilson and Robert Ramsay – quite simply, two farmers with working farms and directors of SoilEssentials. A heritage in farming, a questioning mind and a passion for all that is precision gave them a vision. A vision to make it better.
The precision agriculture journey is never-ending, ever-evolving and we thrive on the emergence of new technologies, developments and the opportunities that arise. Our enthusiasm for being at the forefront of new technologies and our wish to push the boundaries is ever present. Increasingly, there are exciting projects to get involved with, partnering with some of the most influential and ground-breaking research and development teams around, including Innovate UK, European Space Agency, James Hutton Institute, Newcastle University, Cambridge University to name a few.
Jim and Robert are frequently in demand as speakers for their knowledge, insight and enthusiasm for the subject and they regularly give talks to a wide array of organisations, government bodies, conferences and educational institutions, both here and abroad. Invitations from the British High Commission to New Zealand and South America are not unusual.
Teamwork makes the dream work
It’s all about the team – the team of people behind the SoilEssentials name. A colourful cocktail of individuals bringing a unique skill set to enhance and progress the company. We operate with three distinct teams – Agronomy, Machine Control and Software Development & Projects, who pull together to offer the customer real, integrated precision ag solutions. But it doesn’t end there – we pride ourselves in our excellent customer service and support, being right there with you, year in, year out no matter what the season.
