Next Instruments' CropScan 3000H is a dedicated NIR analyzer that is mounted to a combine harvester in order to measure protein, oil and moisture in grains and oil seeds. Although suitable for dry corn or maize, higher moisture corn presents a challenge in getting the kernels to flow consistently. This version of the CropScan 3000H uses a modified flow cell that makes it easier for the corn kernels to flow down through the sample head.
By measuring protein content and yield, a Nitrogen Removal Map can be generated. This map can then be used to develop Variable Rate Nitrogen Fertilization prescriptions. The net results can be an optimization of the yield across the field and a reduction in fertilizer usage.
