Next Instruments, trading as CropScanAg, is pleased to announce the appointment of Rocky Mountain Equipment (RME), Calgary, Alberta, Canada, as a new distributor for the CropScan 3300H On Combine Grain Analyzer and the CropScanAg Solutions N-GAUGE App software across Western Canada.

The CropScan 3300H On Combine Grain Analyzer has been installed in more than 500 combines around the world, mostly Case IH and New Holland combines. The CropScan 3300H measures protein, oil, moisture and starch in grains and oil seeds as they are harvested in the field. The CropScanAg Cloud Server captures and presents the data via the CropScanAg N-GAUGE App.

The N-GAUGE Grain Logistics and Nutrient Manager modules allow users to remotely manage grain transfers from the field to the farm storage site using the Virtual Storage System on any smart device. Farmers can quickly see the quantity and quality of the grain stored on farm or shipped to grain buyer or processor in order to improve grain marketing decisions. The N-GAUGE Nutrient Manager module is specifically designed to enable farmers and their agronomists to efficiently develop and manage Variable Rate Fertilization (VRF) prescriptions for N, P, K and S using their smart phone or tablet.

RME’s Precision Ag Manager Chad Moskal stated that the N-GAUGE app is the real game changer for the CropScan 3300H technology. Now that the N-GAUGE App is available, RME can offer a complete PA solution for Variable Rate Nitrogen Fertilization applications, which is a growing market and major issue for Canadian farmers, Moskal says.

CropScanAg and RME will be working together over the next 12 months to introduce the CropScanAg technology to the RME dealership network. CropScanAg and RME realize training and knowledge is key to making this partnership work. Together they plan to grow the CropScanAg digital footprint and help the Canadian grain industry improve and simplify grain traceability, nitrogen management and overall profitability for farmers.
