    Scope & contentBy Phil Clancy, Next Instruments, Australia

    Farmers have often said that if they purchased everything that was going to save them money, they would go bust. The avalanche of new technology that is now promoted to farmers is extremely confusing. Where and how should farmers proceed with new technology often causes decision paralysis.

    This paper presents several case studies from Australian and Canadian farmers who have installed a CropScan 3000H On Combine NIR Analyser on their combines. As well, at a recent SPAA (Society for Precision Agriculture Australia) meeting in West Wyalong, NSW, Australia, a young farmer gave an excellent talk about his experience with the 3000H system that he installed in 2016. His insights are also presented below.

    Case study 1: In field blending
    Case study 2: On farm segregation and storage
    Case Study 3: Optimising protein and yield
    Case Study 4: Agronomic benefits
    Case Study 5: Accurate moisture measurements increase harvest efficiency
    Case Study 6: Simple VRF prescriptions based on protein
