HarvestEye Ltd partners with Grimme UK to provide crop information

HarvestEyegroupLincoln-based Agri-tech company HarvestEye Ltd is has announced a partnership with root crop machinery specialists Grimme UK to deliver HarvestEyeTM technology to the potato industry

HarvestEyeTM is the UK patented technology that provides insight on size, count and crop variation on unwashed potatoes as they are harvested. The integrated data analytics shows precisely what is being lifted and from where in the field. Providing greater field level information than conventional sampling: this insight aims to help maximise marketable yield and reduce crop imbalance.

As a commercial product, HarvestEye will be manufactured and supported by HarvestEye Ltd. The partnership arrangement is expected to enable Grimme to be the sole UK distributor for HarvestEye for both new and existing harvesters and farm graders.

Patrick Graf Grote, managing director at Grimme UK said, “Innovation is what drives our industry and our Company. We believe HarvestEye will offer UK growers and packers a significant advantage by providing advanced, real-time insights as the crop is harvested. Not to mention the longer-term agronomic value of the detailed data produced by the system.”

“The fact that it can be retrofitted to new and used harvesters and graders makes HarvestEye the ideal product to complement our innovative machinery.”
