“WE HELP FARMERS THROUGH SCIENCE”
GrainSense develops the first truly hand-held device for grain quality measurement. For the first time, farmers, seed producers and plant breeders will be able to 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 production and logistics. Our hand-held device measures the protein, moisture, oil, and carbohydrate content of cereal grains and other crops. The company was founded in 2014 and has offices in Oulu and Helsinki, Finland.
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
Interplay between different wheat cultivars and novel bio stimulants to increase quality and yield in different agroclimatic conditions
Improving European farmers´ competitiveness through technology transfer and innovation integration is essential to address future challenges in the sector
