New Holland will update every CR Series combine harvester ordered for delivery in 2016 with the 3000H Near Infrared (NIR) Grain Analyser

The 3000H NIR, On Combine Grain Analyser, enables real time monitoring of grain protein and oil levels in oilseeds while harvesting.

Based on proven technology the 3000H provides an accurate and rapid means of measuring grain quality in wheat, barley, canola and other grains as they are harvested in the paddock.

The 3000H includes a remote sampling head mounted on the clean grain elevator within the combine.

Grain flows into the sample chamber where light passes through the sample and is collected by a fibre optic cable on the opposite side.

The Fibre Optic Cable transmits the light back to the NIR Spectrometer generating the spectrum of the grain representing the amount of light that is absorbed at each frequency.

Protein, moisture, and oil absorb NIR light at specific frequencies, and the amount of light absorbed is proportional to the concentration.

The whole system can be managed and monitored using the, in cab, 10 inch touch screen  which controls the flap, the flap motors, the motion sensors and computes the percentage of protein, moisture and oil using the NIR spectrum generated in the NIR spectrometer.

Once fitted the grain analyser allows the end user to accurately monitor real-time grain quality readings while harvesting providing combine bin and field averages and the ability to manage silo averages.

The system also provides real time grain quality maps that can be displayed in cab or remotely. From here data can be imported into desktop software to create variable rate maps.

The 3000H NIR is locally designed and developed with Australian conditions in mind making it an ideal addition to New Holland’s already class leading combine.

Customers who purchase a model year 2016 New Holland combine for delivery in 2016 will automatically receive the 3000H fitted by their local New Holland dealer, and will have the opportunity to purchase additional units for other combines within their fleet.

To add to this New Holland is also offering an all-expenses-paid trip to Europe for anyone who orders a New Holland combine before the 20th January 2016.

The trip will take place in late June/July and will include a host of tourist stops and visits to two New Holland manufacturing facilities.

"We are really excited to be able to offer the 3000H NIR as part of the package for all model year 2016 combines ordered for delivery next year," says New Holland Hay & Harvest Product Manager Tony Peters.

"New Holland’s CR Series combine range delivers the ultimate in comfort and up to 15 per cent more productivity with its Harvest SuiteTM Ultra cab offering a larger space with more glass for better visibility than previous models.

"With the range-topping CR10.90, the first combine to enter the class 10 segment and the most powerful CR ever, New Holland is proud to deliver the highest capacity in the industry and truly outstanding performance.

"This advanced grain analysing technology will allow our customers to segregate grain in the field to maximise yields and in turn pricing for the grower, while having the ability to manage fertiliser inputs based upon protein levels harvested".
