Uncovering how Altitude Affects Crop Growth

To understand how crops will grow throughout a season, it’s vital to learn the elevation of a parcel or field. Elevation or topography is often described as the pattern and magnitude of sloples across a field. Mapping and accounting for topography are vital in understanding the accumulation of water, organic matter, and other material in landscapes, which in turn affects the development and properties of soils. It can also impact and influence soil pH, water leaching, crop development, mineral formation, and many other soil and site characteristics. 

At CIBO, we provide a simple, easy-to-use map view that showcases the elevation, soil map, and performance zones with one click. Check out examples of our elevation maps through the links below.
