GreenSeeker Crop Sensing System

The Trimble® GreenSeeker® crop sensing system helps you effectively and precisely manage crop inputs on-the-go. With GreenSeeker, you can address field variability by applying the right amount of fertilizer, in the right place, at the right time.

  • Create a high-yielding environment for your crop to grow
  • Reduce nutrient input costs by eliminating excess application
  • Eliminate the need for application maps or agronomist recommendations
  • Operate night or day, and in fog or clouds

The GreenSeeker system uses optical sensors to measure and quantify the variability of the crop. It then creates a targeted prescription to treat the crop variability. Use GreenSeeker to apply your UAN, UREA, and NH3 to help increase crop yields and ultimately increase your profitability.

Features
  • Provides instant sidedress fertilizer application for inputs such as nitrogen
  • Uses optical sensors to measure and quantify crop health—or vigor
  • Compatible with both the TMX-2050™ display and FmX® integrated display
  • Works with most variable rate controllers and delivery systems
  • Can be mounted on booms on most sprayers/spreaders
GreenSeeker Handheld Crop Sensor

GreenSeeker handheld crop sensor

The Trimble GreenSeeker handheld crop sensor is an affordable, easy-to-use measurement device that can be used to assess the heath—or vigor—of a crop in order to make better nutrient management decisions on your farm.

More +

Use the GreenSeeker handheld to instantly take a reading of your crop’s health. Readings can be used to make non-subjective decisions regarding the amount of fertilizer to be applied to your crop, resulting in a more efficient use of fertilizer—a benefit to your bottom line and the environment.

How it Works

  • The sensor emits brief bursts of red and infrared light and then measures the amount of each type of light that is reflected back from the plant
  • The sensor continues to sample the scanned area as long as the trigger remains engaged
  • The sensor displays the measured value in terms of an NDVI reading (ranging from 0.00 to 0.99) on its LCD display screen
  • The strength of the detected light is a direct indicator of the health of the crop; the higher the reading, the healthier the plant
  • Use the Trimble Ag Software scout app on a smartphone or tablet to calculate fertilizer application rates from crop readings taken with the GreenSeeker handheld.


Benefits

  • High-quality optical sensor to instantly measure plant vigor
  • Easy-to-read display, even in sunlight
  • Simple pull-type trigger and comfortable hand grip
  • Micro USB charging port
