Oulu, Finland – GrainSense Oy launches a product innovation for real-time grain quality analysis. As the world’s population keeps growing and climate challenges affect farming, the food industry is in dire need of smart solutions that make food production more efficient and reliable. Being able to track and monitor the quality of crops becomes a decisive factor in grain business as we approach modern highly data-driven agriculture.
GrainSense Oy delivers a ground-breaking innovation for grain quality analysis. Reliable data on protein and moisture of crops as well as green and broken kernels level allow farmers to make educated decisions regarding their harvests. The GrainSense Flow Analyzer has been developed specifically for environments where grains are flowing such as combine harvesters, silos, or dryers. Grain quality is measured constantly while on the move and the collected data is sent to the GrainSense Cloud database for real-time analysis and monitoring.
The GrainSense Flow Analyzer is based on patented technology that is already successfully used in another GrainSense product; the hand-held analyzer launched in 2017. “There are already well over 1,500 GrainSense Analyzers in use in more than 40 countries,” explains CEO Riku Niemelä from GrainSense, “Now we are bringing out an even more advanced solution to help make grain yields more predictable and harvests more profitable.”
GrainSense customers are excited about the new product. “Grain quality level monitoring in real-time is something totally new for me,” comments a farmer from Tyrnävä, Finland. While another farmer based in Muhos, Finland said: “Being able to check up on the drying process whenever and wherever is the key feature for us.”
With a partner and distributor network spanning across Europe, Asia, North and Latin Americas as well as Australia, GrainSense is ready to serve a global audience in intelligent agriculture.
GrainSense was established in 2014, as a spin-off of a research project at VTT, the Technical Research Centre of Finland. It became evident that the Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIR) technology could be used to answer a dire need to track grain quality efficiently and reliably. GrainSense helps grain growers, farmers, silo/dryer operators, traders, animal nutritionists and other food industry operators to ensure that every crop is fit for purpose and sold at the right price.
