The RPM20 Bluetooth Rapid Platemeter is the trailed version of the EC20. The wheel runs over the ground to record speed and measures the ground height with the skid unit works in the same way as the plate on a standard platemeter measuring Sward height. The Rapid platemeter then connects via Bluetooth to an Android App. The app raises and lowers the skid for transport as well as storing all your paddock records (Paddock Name, Number and Size) The app shows the individual readings from the platemeter and a user adjustable equation is used to calculate and display the average grass yield in each paddock (KgDM/ha)
The app also displays the previous reading so a quick indication of growth can be seen. The readings from the farm walk can then be viewed in a report showing a grazing wedge as well as a table of total and available yields. This can be exported as a .CSV file (excel spreadsheet) or can be sent directly to your Agrinet profile.

Do I need to use Agrinet?
You do not need to have an Agrinet account to use the app, the data is all stored in the app and can easily be viewed at any time. Reports can also be exported as .CSV files to be imported into excel spreadsheets or other pasture management software.
Will The App work with my iPhone?
Currently there is only an Android App for the Bluetooth Platemeter so you will need an Android device.
