“Wherever the GrainSense device and solution has been introduced, we have seen exceptionally strong interest in the device”, says Edvard Krogius, CEO of GrainSense. “The feedback from customers is overwhelming and we are very busy attending events, field days, and conferences in Northern Europe presenting the device through out the summer, Krogius continues.
GrainSense is the first grain quality measurement device that is affordable and field durable to be owned and used by farmers. The international end-user sales price is 3.900 eur (tax 0%), including the device, a carry bag, a measure cup, cap and 1 year warranty. A personal user account is needed for the use of the device; 250 eur/year (tax 0%), includes 4 grain species (initially available are wheat, barley, oats and rye, rapeseed will follow), updates and calibrations, data storage, and the possibility to share the measurement results.
Big interest among the farming community
The GrainSense solution has been developed in close collaboration with individual farmers and farming organizations.The feedback from farmers has confirmed that currently there are no suitable tools available to support farm-level decision-making in order to manage and optimize the protein content of crops.
Bringing the grain quality measurement practice to the farm level
The GrainSense hand-held device measures the protein, moisture, oil, and carbohydrate content of cereals and other crops – i.e. key determinants of the harvest value and processing cost. The device is battery powered, the measurement time is just a few seconds, and it requires only a few grains and takes just seconds to make each measurement. The service includes a mobile application with GPS positioning and cloud connection, which supports a suite of value-added services for improving productivity and profitability.
Laboratory accuracy from field in seconds
For the first time, farmers, seed producers, and plant breeders will be able to rapidly measure the key parameters of their crops in the field (even before harvesting) and make decisions that can significantly improve their productivity and profitability. The device will also enable meat producers to control and adjust the protein content of feed in real time, which can have a major impact on profitability.
