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.
