Combine monitor first of its kind

First on the market with a combine monitor that automatically records moisture content of grain as it's harvested is Griffith Elder and Company, of Suffolk, England.
Designed to fit all combines, the new moisture-yield monitor mounts on the outer end of the unloading auger. As grain is unloaded, whether standing still or on the go, the device monitors both yield and moisture content. "There are no moving parts so grain is free to run out the spout at the maximum unloading rate," says Elder. He notes that the monitor works on all crops, and records true weight so there is no need to recalibrate for different crops. Moisture content, batch yield and cumulative yield are all displayed on a "Master Monitor" control mounted inside the cab.
