Sampling and harvest

AGRES can perform large area harvests and small plot harvests, collecting per plot yield and moisture data  and saving samples for analytical evaluation. AGRES has accurate weighing systems incorporated into our harvest equipment in order to record per plot or per row weights. AGRES harvest equipment is calibrated at multiple weight increments prior to harvesting in order to ensure accurate data collection.
