GrainSense and ABP Turkey are officially launching GrainSense on the Turkish market.

The handheld device is being introduced on the IDMA 2019 fair in Istanbul, and visitors are welcome for a demo on the ABP booth B12 in hall 10. Please feel free to come and visit us, alongside ABP. The fair runs from now until the 23rd.

We are happy to bring our technology to the Turkish market. This will allow for the first time, Turkish grain traders, farmers, seed producers, and plant breeders to rapidly measure the key parameters of their crops in the field (even before harvesting) and make decisions that can significantly improve their productivity and profitability.

Determine the grain quality on the spot

Is there a way for a farmer to improve this situation? That is the aim of GrainSense, the pocket laboratory devised by Ralf Marbach. This optics specialist, the former Senior Scientist at VTT (the Finnish equivalent of the French National Centre for Scientific Research, CNRS) has devised an instrument capable of using infra-red waves to analyse the composition of a grain in just a few seconds. It shows its protein, oil and carbohydrate content, as well as its moisture content.

With the instrument in his hand "a few weeks before harvest, when the ears are beginning to open, a farmer will be able to go into his field and distinguish the plots, where the quality is poor from those, which it is worthwhile to enrich to bring them into the higher category," explains Edvard Krogius, CEO of GrainSense. "Even at the time of harvest, sorting the grains into homogeneous stock will be made easier, without having to wait weeks after the grain has dried, as is currently the case, to obtain results from laboratories."

The instrument offers the cereal farmer the opportunity to benefit from the global capacity to stock big data. "All the analyses will be saved in the cloud," states Edvard Krogius. "The farmer will be able, harvest after harvest, to monitor his own personally owned results and will have access to anonymised grain data offered through the cloud service." The machine, tested on some twenty farms, will be officially launched at the Agritechnica Agricultural Show in Hanover in November 2017.
