Soil Sampling Strategies

I have written several times about why we use zone sampling to give our customers advice on nutrient management.  The biggest weakness of a grid sample is that it is tied to a spot and extrapolated.  Zones are tied to soil features, yields, topography and other pertinent information.
Sampling is across the whole zone.  The article in No-Till Farmer Talks about the two strategies and defines them very well.
