NIRXact

Fertilization
Harvest

Near infrared sensor for crops and slurry


Mounted directly on your machines, NIRXact is a versatile sensor able to analyse and determine the exact composition of crops and grains - such as dry matter, protein, starch, fibre, neutral detergent fibre, acid detergent fibre and sugar - and the composition of cow, pig and biogas digestate slurry. 

It can be used on many different machines such as forage harvesters, combine harvesters and slurry tankers.

 

Forage Harvester Application

Production of high quality silage. Optimize your purchase of concentrate food by understanding the exact quality of your silage directly after the harvest. Determine the crop quality and pay the right price depending on the biogas production potential.

  • Adjust cutting length & inoculants application based on moisture level
  • Map crop constituent and create valuable prescription maps for next season
  • Compare hybrid variety productivity
  • Analysis on-the-go, no need to stop for collecting samples
  • Immediate results
  • Lower cost per analysis
  • More than 10 products available such as green maize, green grass, alfalfa or green rye (optional calibration curves may be required)

 

Combine Harvester Application

Definition of grain quality directly in the field. Grain lots can be stored depending on their quality in order to optimize their commercialization Grain quality data can be georeferenced and used to create maps.

  • Compare hybrid variety 
  • Get productivity Map crop constituent and create valuable prescription maps for next season
  • Contractors: Offer additional services 
  • Crops Growers: Optimise selling price of grain based on protein content

 

Slurry Application

NIRXact combined with ManureXcontrol sensor allows you to perform variable rate application of slurry, which brings up many advantages for the farmer:

  • Reduction of mineral fertilizer input cost
  • Total overview of the NPK repartition across the field
  • Application of maximum nitrogen while keeping legal limits
  • Reduced slurry transport
  • Traceability
