The ability to map protein and combine it with yield mapping is where the magic happens. The sensor gives you an average protein and moisture content for each hopper load. In cereals this may help you segregate high versus low protein wheat or malt barley. I’ve seen some producers do their own on farm blending using a grain cart. This technology would make it that much easier to blend grain when you know what you have.

I can see this technology on every combine in the future as it holds great potential to evaluate components of your agronomy program like fertility, fungicides, seeding rates and varieties. It can also be used to segregate grain based on moisture or protein content.
