GrainSense has developed the world’s first hand-held device for grain quality measurement. For the first time, farmers, seed producers and plant breeders are able to instantly and rapidly measure the key parameters of their crops in the field and make decisions that can improve profitability. Our device measures protein, moisture, oil, and carbohydrate content of cereal grains and other crops. The service utilises GPS positioning and offers cloud-based big data services.
