Accurate Crop Analysis. Better feedstock management: HarvestLab
Mounted on the crop spout, HarvestLab measures both moisture and crop constituents (ADF, NDF, Starch, Protein and Sugar) in real-time. The most popular system in the industry, it was developed and patented with Carl Zeiss and uses Near Infrared technology to measure harvested crop 17 times every second. Independently certified by the DLG (Deutsche Landwirtschafts Gesellschaft) to an accuracy of ± 0.78% for dry matter content, HarvestLab takes the guesswork out of producing high quality silage.
When you add to this real-time constituent measurement, it also has the power to transform the way your customers manage their feedstocks and plan their future choice of crop varieties.
HarvestLab is pre-calibrated and the new mounting bracket requires no adjustment. So you’ll enjoy accurate readings all season.
Works in any crop
Provides accurate constituent data in alfalfa, barley, corn earlage, grass, maize, wheat and whole crop.
Better silage quality
By linking the HarvestLab measurements to the cutterhead control system the optimum cut length based on the moisture reading is automatically set.
More efficient silage packing
Tests have shown that silage packing is improved by up to 25% with the correct length of cut. This reduces air pockets for better anaerobic digestion and higher silage quality.
Better feedstock management
Customers can now calculate the composition of their clamp for better planning of feed rationing and identify any requirements for supplementary additives.
