The HarvestLab™ 3000 measures and documents both dry matter and constituents in real-time for accurate silage quality analysis.
BETTER INFORMATION, MORE VALUE
HARVESTLAB™ 3000 FORAGE AND MANURE ANALYSIS
Take real-time forage and manure information from the HarvestLab™ 3000 sensor and make in-field adjustments to create the best product you have ever delivered – on the fly, accurately and reliably.
ONE SENSOR, FOUR APPLICATIONS
You can use HarvestLab™ 3000 on an forage harvester, combine harvester, slurry tanker, or as a mobile laboratory.
INTEGRATED CROP DOSING
HarvestLab™ 3000 sensor readings also work beautifully with another feature of the 8000 and 9000 Series: the fully integrated ADS Twin Line system doses silage additives based on time, harvested tons or on dry matter tons using HarvestLab™ 3000 sensor readings. Supplied from two different tanks, the dosing nozzles are positioned at air intake of the crop accelerator and allow you to choose either fixed or variable dosing rates based on moisture readings from HarvestLab™ 3000. The twin tanks allow you to add two different inoculants together, or apply them at different times, giving you the flexibility to adapt to each specific job’s needs.
THE SECRET TO GREAT SILAGE
HARVESTLAB™ 3000 ON A FORAGE HARVESTER
HarvestLab™ 3000 simultaneously measures the dry matter and various constituents of harvested crops. Its sensor uses near-infrared-reflectance (NIR) technology that takes over 4,000 readings per second to produce instant and highly accurate data on the go. Since its introduction in 2008, thousands of HarvestLab™ units have been operating around the world, with excellent performance even in challenging field conditions.
The site-specific data from HarvestLab™ 3000 helps crop growers improve their field nutrient management much better than from a single sample sent to a lab. On a forage harvester, HarvestLab™ 3000 enables automated length of cut adjustment depending on dry matter content, ensuring optimum silage compaction and conservation. Livestock and dairy farmers profit from real-time detection of changes in feed quality and better silage additive control. Biogas producers like HarvestLab™ 3000 for the accurate information they get on the crop quality they buy.
