Measurement solutions for agricultural applications

Heavy and complex machines, changeable weather conditions, extreme temperatures, humidity, etc. - harsh ambient conditions in agricultural applications place high demands on test and measurement equipment.

Be it forage growing, cash crop, special crop or farm breeding - HBM provides the right solution for your application. Benefit from over 60 years of experience in test and measurement! In addition to high-grade standard products we develop innovative individual solutions in close cooperation with you.

A wide range of possible applications

Our test and measurement products are used in many agricultural applications. Here are a few example ...

Biogas plants: Control of automatic loaders

Gas produced in biogas plants is buffered and used in a combined heat and power station. It generates electricity that is fed into the public grid as well as heat. Thanks to their ruggedness, compact design and easy mounting load cells, junction boxes and weighing electronics from HBM can be used to control the automatic loaders.

Compost production: Compost weighing

High humidity and high temperatures – ambient conditions in compost weighing place high demands on the weighing equipment used. Load cells such as the legal-for-trade Z6 meet these requirements.

Fertilizer application: Fertilizer weighing, data acquisition and analysis

Fertilizer application needs to be resource-saving and efficient. The spreading of fertilizer is optimized using load cells, measurement data acquisition systems or software from HBM.

Whole grain analysis: Weighing of grain samples

Weight is a critical factor in determining crop quality. It indicates pest infestation or the amount of defective grains. Load cells, digital transducer electronics and software from HBM are used to weigh grain samples.
