Topcon Agriculture innovates Yield Monitoring for conveyor-type harvesters
The path towards automated workflows relies on solid data foundations
HANNOVER, Germany – November 10, 2019 – The newest systems in Topcon Agriculture’s portfolio are designed to offer powerful agronomic insights through real-time monitoring and high-quality data that set the foundations for digital farm management.
The latest innovation, Yield Monitoring for conveyor-type harvesters, is designed to capture accurate yield data for specialty crops, including potatoes, sugar beets, grapes, onions, and tomatoes. Utilizing load cells, the solution measures, maps, and logs live yield, moisture, and crop contamination to provide powerful agronomic insights. All data can be visualized on Topcon displays and seamlessly uploaded on the Topcon Agriculture Platform (TAP).
“We are bringing precise yield data to the specialty crop market to enable farmers to make informed agronomic decisions,” said Antonio Marzia, Topcon Agriculture vice president of Business Solutions. “Our customers can count on this product to be at the frontlines of digital farm management.”
The new Liquid Manure Sensing and Control solution is launched as well. It comes from a cooperation with m-u-t GmbH, a leading German company in the field of optical nutrient measurement technology. The sensor detects the level of nitrogen in the liquid manure and allows full compliance with the European/German regulation on fertilization.
“Thanks to our partnership with m-u-t, we are introducing a convincing high-tech product to meet the needs of profitable and sustainable agriculture,” said Marzia.
