The next step to the perfect forage

How we help you

When promoting wilted silage, it is important to harvest with the optimal dry matter. The nature of the growth plays a major role here. This is not homogeneous in the area, but there are always differences in the stocks in the area. These stock differences are also a major challenge in wilting silage. They inevitably lead to fluctuating wilting rates and thus dry matter content. In most cases, not all lots can be harvested with the optimal dry matter content. We would like to help you here. Thanks to data analyzes and practical tests lasting several years, we have the know-how to predict wilting behavior on a site-specific basis. From the predictions, our application creates fully automated target maps for you in ISOBUS format, with the help of which the processing intensity can be adjusted to suit the specific area. This means you can harvest more homogeneous dry matter across all harvested fields.

The advantages at a glance

  • higher energy yield from the field

  • higher feed intake -> more performance from the basic feed

  • smaller deviations in nutrient composition in the feed ration

  • lower crumbling losses in the field

  • Lower fuel consumption, as intensive processing is only carried out where it is necessary

  • Overall better environmental balance through better surface and energy efficiency

Target conditioning and dry matter

See that it works

Here you can see data from a grassland area. The points are measuring points of the dry matter content measured with the NIR sensor of the self-propelled forage harvester. The area was mown with a constant conditioner setting. The tiles in the background represent a target map for the preparation, which our application would have provided for a site-specific preparation setting. As can be seen, the conditioner setting would have been ideally adapted to the different drying processes and the fluctuations in the dry matter content would have been minimized.

It's that easy to use

  1. You create a measure in the usual way in your ISO-XML capable farm management software (FMIS).

  2. The generated TASKDATA.XML is sent to the MoistureManager.

  3. The MoistureManager generates the target cards for the automated conditioner control fully automatically in ISO-XML format.

  4. The TAKSDATA.XML, expanded to include the target cards, is forwarded to an ISOBUS TC GEO task controller.

  5. The task controller takes over the control of the conditioner according to the target card.
