Green Growth Yield Monitor provides real-time data analytics on land productivity which is to ultimately help farmers reduce fertiliser usage by at least 10 percent.

Green Growth, a developer of real-time yield mapping technology for farmers, releases Green Growth Yield Monitor to make yield monitoring and analysis highly effective and as simple as possible. The system collects and analyses crucial harvesting data across every point of the field with minimal interaction from the farmer, Green Growth claims.

Heat maps

During harvest, yield data is collected directly from harvesting machines and is analysed and presented in real-time as a heat map, letting the farmer see zones with high and low productivity in real-time while in the office. With these yield maps farmers can optimise their inputs, such as fertilisers, seeds, and crop protection products.

Key features and benefits according to Green Growth :

  • Universal: it can be installed on any age, make, or model of the harvester. The farmer can have a fleet of different machines harvesting the same field, and with Green Growth will get the most accurate yield map;
  • Scalable: minimal interaction from end-users. All control is done from the web app, any calibration can be done at any time from anywhere;
  • Fast self-installation: under 2 hours;
  • High calculation accuracy: 95% or higher.

Prices

The business model is based on charges for hardware and a yearly subscription for data access. The system is targeted to any size farm that is involved in crop production. Hardware costs $ 1990 per harvester, yearly subscription starts from $ 400 and gives access to data visualization. The technology works on every combine-harvester.
