When providing farmers with solutions that improve their business and quality of life, companies must start with what keeps producers up at night. For row crop farmers, managing quality grain after harvest is a significant concern and a top priority.
Efficiency is critical for farmers to maximize profit, and grain drying can be a significant bottleneck. Dryers operate for a short time throughout the year but are a vital element of grain management. When mechanical issues occur with a dryer, it causes downtime and limits the farmers’ drying capacity. Lost time during harvest season can cost farmers money.
Maintaining ideal moisture during storage is also essential. Mistakes can lead to profit loss1 – due to too high or too low moisture – or diminished grain quality, seen as cracking and other damage.
Monitoring grain dryers to now
Producers have used applications and systems such as GSI’s WatchDog to monitor their grain dryers remotely. WatchDog allows producers to see and control their dryers from any web-accessible device via a website. Producers could confidently step away from their actual dryer controller with the knowledge that they would be able to check in and make adjustments from the web.
But technology is constantly changing and evolving, and mobile and application-based platforms have become vital in how many producers run their operations. So, GSI is taking steps to truly put grain monitoring in the palm of your hand with GSI Connect.
