“Wherever the GrainSense device and solution has been introduced, we have seen exceptionally strong interest in the device”, says Edvard Krogius. “The feedback from customers is overwhelming and we have been very busy attending events, field days, and conferences in Northern Europe presenting the device during the last two years”, Krogius continues.
GrainSense is the first grain quality measurement device that is affordable and field durable to be owned and used by farmers. A personal user account is needed for the use of the device which includes country specific species (currently available are wheat, barley, oats, rye, and rapeseed), updates and calibrations, data storage, and the possibility to share the measurement results.
