Farmers using Next Instruments’ CropScan 3300H on-combine grain analyser will now be able to track various grain qualities remotely thanks to a new mobile app developed by the company. 

Developed in collaboration with distribution partner CropScanAg, the N-Gauge App’s Grain Logistics Module displays a Virtual Grain Storage System setup for the farm.

The module shows the running average for protein, moisture and oil plus weight for the grain stored in each storage unit, including grain carts, mother bins, field bins, silos, bags and others.

Every load of grain that is offloaded from the combine is tracked from the field to the farmer’s site storage locations or shipped off to the grain buyers or elevators.

The N-Gauge Grain Logistics App also allows the farmer, field manager and workers to direct the flow of grain from the combine to the site storage locations using their Smart Phone, iPad or Android tablet; with operators able to blend, split and transfer grain. 

The N-Gauge Blending Estimator tool allows the user to blend grain from two or three storage locations into a truck or field bin to achieve a specific Protein or Oil grade, thereby optimising crop payments or to ensure the correct moisture content.

Other N-Gauge modules are being developed to provide a complete on-farm solution to measuring, managing and growing grains and oilseeds.

Next Instruments says it plans for these modules to provide management tools for optimising Yield in the Field through simple yet accurate variable rate fertilisation applications, in season nutrient management, soil carbon sequestration and greenhouse gas emission management.
