GreenSeeker® optical sensor technology enables you to measure, in real time, a crop’s variability, and variably apply the “prescribed” fertiliser or chemical requirements. GreenSeeker® also predicts yield potential for the crop using the agronomic vegetative index (NDVI).
GreenSeeker® permits you to have better control of input use, allowing you to apply the right amount in the right place at the right time – improving your yields, decreasing your nitrogen cost and increasing your bottom line!
GreenSeeker® enables you to also collect data during existing farming operations such as spraying, cultivation and mowing.
The RT100 GreenSeeker Handheld is a crop research and consulting tool that provides useful data to determine Normalised Difference Vegetative Index (NDVI) using red and near infrared light. The indexes can be used to indicate basic nutrient response, crop condition, yield potential, stress, biomass, leaf area, herbicide efficacy and pest impact. The unit can be used to monitor changing field (crop, plant) conditions, during the growing season and/or the effects of different levels of an input compared to a local standard. Modulated LED light sources allow use day or night. The unit’s optical sensor captures the light reflectance of plants. The microprocessor circuit board analyses the plant’s reflected light. The data collected with the sensor can be downloaded to a personal computer in a text format compatible with Microsoft Excel.
The Trimble® GreenSeeker handheld crop sensor is an affordable, easy-to-use measurement device that can be used to assess the health – or vigour – of a pasture or crop in order to make better nutrient management decisions on your farm.
The GreenSeeker handheld instantly takes a reading of your crop’s health. Readings can be used to make non-subjective decisions regarding the amount of fertiliser to be applied to your crop, resulting in more efficient use of fertiliser – a benefit to your bottom line and the environment.
