Sydney, Australia — Next Instruments Pty Ltd and Trimble announced that Next Instruments has been chosen as a Trimble Select Business Partner for agriculture. As a Trimble Select Business Partner, Next Instruments’ CropScan 3300H On Combine Analyzer and CropScanAg Solutions Mapping Service will be available to customers through the Trimble and Vantage distribution networks in the U.S. and Australia.

The CropScan 3300H On Combine Analyzer is a leading near infrared(NIR) analyzer designed to measure protein, moisture, starch and oil in grains and oilseeds as they are stripped in a combine harvester. The CropScanAg Solutions Mapping Service collects the data, and then combines it with yield and GPS coordinates. The combined data is used to develop variable rate fertilizer maps and prescriptions, which enable farmers to apply fertilizer where it is needed in the field to help increase crop yield.

Through the Trimble Select Business Program, Next Instruments will expand its U.S. distribution and Trimble will also extend its program with Next Instruments to cover Australian Trimble dealers. Installation and technical support will be provided to the dealers directly from Next Instruments.

This relationship demonstrates Trimble’s commitment to collaborating with other technology innovators in an effort to provide solutions that complement and connect farm operations for growers worldwide, through its portfolio of Trimble Select Business Partner solutions.
