Our award-winning EssentialsRootYield product creates the opportunity to make more informed decisions as it works in parallel to your harvesting operations. You can view your yields in real time as EssentialsRootYield integrates seamlessly with the Trimble FmX® guidance display while on the move.

The EssentialsRootYield is easily fitted after-market to all major makes and models of harvester.

How does it work?

  • Two or four load cells to weigh the flow of the crops over a harvester
  • Tilt sensor corrects the mapped weight for the effect of slope
  • Data is saved onto a USB stick or the yield monitor can integrate with the Trimble FmX® - data is sent direct to the grower's desktop for review


With a root yield map, both the area and magnitude of the yield loss are measured, allowing the grower to quantify how much the low yielding area has cost in lost income and if, therefore, it is worth addressing the underlying problem.

Crop trials area a great way to identify higher yielding varieties, agrochemicals and cultivation techniques on your own farm, however the data has to be carefully analysed to ensure the data is valid. We can ensure you get the most out of your own crop trials.
