New Holland adds analysis tech to MyPLM Connect

Adding its Nutrisense in-harvest nutrient analysis system to its MyPLM Connect precision agriculture portal will help farmers improve crop quality, New Holland says

New Holland NutriSense nutrient analysis technology helps farmers make informed decisions

The addition of NutriSense to MyPLM Connect will provide farmers with valuable agronomic measurements such as crop moisture, starch, crude protein, fibre, ash and crude fat content across the field.

Farmers can also visualise the data through the MyPLM Connect interface to make more informed decisions to enable them to extract the most profit out of the crops.

Global head of product marketing for MyPLM, Eduardo Nicz, says farmers will now be better able to visualise crop nutrient data collected by their machines at harvest.

"Our strategy at New Holland is to integrate digital technologies to deliver a smart and connected agriculture to our customers, with easy-to-use solutions," Nicz says.

"The NutriSense system is an excellent example: it provides farmers with detailed agronomic data collected by their New Holland combine or forage harvesters in the field.

"This will enable them to use their inputs most efficiently and harvest a crop they will sell at better prices."

NutriSense was awarded the silver medal at the SIMA Innovation Awards in 2021.

When used on New Holland’s FR Forage Cruiser, the NutriSense system can be used to help the farmer understand and manage their field health and performance using year-on-year field data.

Measurements collected by the machine can detect soil contamination in forage - helping them enact safeguards - and a crop moisture detector can help the farmer make decisions on the storage of animal feed. 

The system also helps farmers understand when and how crude protein, crude fat and starch content of crops will improve the animal feed ration content and quality, meaning a healthier, higher quality of animal feed is produced and capable of being sold at a premium price.

Cash crop operations can also benefit from the NutriSense when used on New Holland CR, CX7 and/or CX8 combine harvesters - using its year-on-year field data to manage and improve field health and performance.

The system can measure crop protein levels, which will be useful when calculating fertiliser application rates for coming seasons, while detecting starch levels helps farmers understand the suitability of a crop for bio-fuel production.

Detecting a crop's protein content helps farmers to better determine whether the crop is suitable for milling wheat, which earns more profit, or for animal feed - and knowing the potential value of a crop at harvest will also help farmers make better decisions about how to store the crop.

New Holland global head of product management for crop harvesting Lars Skojoldager Sorensen says the combines themselves have a "massive capacity with outstanding grain quality."

"The NutriSense system gives our customers an additional advantage: the detailed information on nutrients enables them to optimise the use of inputs, determine the best way to manage their crop, and understand value of their crop to obtain the best price for it." 

New Holland also says it expects to continually expand its functionalities of the MyPLM Connect app, with the NutriSense system’s visualisation of data the latest addition.
