“WE HELP FARMERS THROUGH SCIENCE”
GrainSense has developed the world’s first hand-held device for grain quality measurement. For the first time, farmers, seed producers and plant breeders will be able to instantly and rapidly measure the key parameters of their crops in the field and make decisions that can improve profitability. We are bringing a major improvement to food supply chain. Our hand-held device measures the protein, moisture, oil, and carbohydrate content of cereal grains and other crops. The service utilizes GPS positioning and offers cloud based big data services.
Competences & Capabilities
Main areas of specialization and technological expertise are:
- Optics, near infrared spectroscopy
- Material calibration and quality measurements
- Mathematical algoritms
- Cloud based data service offering
We are bringing an easy to use handheld device and solutions for farmers to improve crop quality and revenue. GrainSense device will be introduced in spring 2018 on the Nordic market. GrainSense is looking for suitable distributors for the sales on the European market 2019 and beyond.
Partner in the following EIT Food projects
To do so, the following will be addressed: Identification of wheat cultivars with high yield and quality traits in different locations in Europe; To test varieties identified in year one that are more drought tolerant and/or responsive to the biostimulants; Validation of novel prototype biostimulants under field conditions to support grain yield and quality; Agronomic advice for farmers
