The Crop Scan 3300H Grain Analyzer is an agricultural digital technology that is installed on the college’s combine, and is capable of measuring protein and moisture content of harvested grain, oil seeds, and pulse crops in near-real time. Olds College is working closely with Farmers Edge to evaluate the technology, which could lead to producers being able to map geospatial crop information and improve field management. 

Funders/Partners: CFI/RCP, Farmers Edge, NSERC, PrairiesCan, Vantage Canada
