The RPM20 Bluetooth Rapid Plate Meter offers a fast and easy method of data capture making it ideal for the larger farm.

It comes complete with an Android app to enable data to be displayed on your Android smart-phone. Data is then easily transferred to your grazing management software - such as Agrinet.

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.
