F.A.R.M. Phase One
F.A.R.M. Phase one is a computer program which controls the processing of soil samples at Plains Innovative Laboratory Services in Saskatoon. This video describes the four steps of the soil testing process and shows how this computer program maintains control of the sample flow through the laboratory and maintains the integrity of the data in the system. The video follows the soil samples through the various analytical procedures up to the printing of the final report which is faxed and mailed to the fertilizer dealer or farmer. The showing of this video will demonstrate the procedures involved in the analysis of a soil sample and outline the quality assurance procedures that are part of the system.
