Martin Lishman Ltd Introduces AgroLog: The Ultimate Wireless Crop Moisture and Temperature Probe
The industry has longed for an accurate crop moisture and temperature probe that combines precision and ease of use in a single package.
Addressing this demand, crop storage specialists Martin Lishman Ltd have introduced the AgroLog moisture and temperature probe to their comprehensive line-up of crop quality equipment. Timed perfectly for the 2023 season, this cutting-edge 2-meter probe offers instant temperature and moisture readings, serving as the ultimate portable monitoring solution. Equipped with five on-board sensors and an extensive calibration process, it can accurately determine the moisture content of stored grain.
The probe’s standout feature is its seamless wireless capabilities. Once positioned in the crop, it automatically collects moisture and temperature data and sends it via the cellular network to the cloud for further analysis. The data can be conveniently accessed and manipulated using the AgroLog app, available for iOS and Android. Additionally, a web-app version is accessible on any internet-enabled device.
“The AgroLog probe is an exciting addition to our crop quality range,” explains Joel Capper, Managing Director for Martin Lishman Ltd. “We believe this probe fills a gap in the market, and we are confident that farmers across the UK will find it a valuable tool to use in their stores.”
With its advanced sensor technology, the AgroLog probe provides users with crucial knowledge of the equilibrium moisture content (EMC) specific to their grain. Understanding the EMC is essential for effective grain drying. Farmers and grain handlers can ensure safe storage conditions while avoiding unnecessary energy consumption and economic losses associated with over-drying.
The multiple sensors inside the AgroLog Probe assist in identifying the location of the drying front. By confirming when the lower levels of grain have reached their target moisture content, the probe helps users decide when to turn off heaters so that fresh airflow can be utilised, reducing the risk of over-drying and saving energy.
Pete Waudby, Farm Manager for J.E. Atkinson & Son, trialled the new AgroLog probe earlier this year. “I was fortunate enough to trial this probe during the testing stage. I was surprised at how easy it was to set up and use, and the unit’s accuracy coincided with our moisture meters. This will be a handy tool for any farmer looking for an instant guideline moisture reading.”
Constructed from the highest quality materials, the AgroLog probe is designed to withstand the rigours of farm use. Its construction incorporates aluminium, fibreglass, and ABS, ensuring its durability, and it is weatherproof to withstand the harshest storage conditions.
