The intelligence is in our database

To predict the nutrient status, the Scanner compares its results to our soil database, leaf database or Trouw Nutrition’s nutritional database.
This way we are able to provide quick and affordable nutrient testing and recommendation services.
Our soil database is now operational in 22 countries, including 7 in Africa.
Our leaf database is currently available for several crops and developing.
Our Feed solutions use the database developed by
Trouw Nutrition, our strategic partner.

Simple on the outside, high tech inside

The Scanner may look very simple from the outside; the technology inside is very sophisticated and groundbreaking. The Scanner contains a light source and a NIR spectrometer on a chip. The real game changer is however the combination of the device and the database in the cloud. The scans from the Scanner are compared with the data in the cloud and  recommendations are given via your smartphone.

The Scanner is a mobile device that provides an analysis within minutes. The Lab-in-a-box provides a complete soil status (Macro and Micro nutrients) in two hours.

To large farmers and service providers we recommend the Scanner for after planting monitoring and the Lab-in-a-box before planting.

To small scale farmers we advise the use of the Scanner both before and after planting.
