The FarmTRX Story
Farmer and Technologist Perry Casson had three combines on his farm without yield monitors but he wanted to collect yield data from his fields. He had begun variable rate trials and wanted a way to measure the outcomes of these trials. After searching the market to retrofit his older model harvesters with a retrofit yield monitor, he was disappointed with the high prices for outdated technology.
4 years ago Perry built the first FarmTRX prototype in Medstead, SK. Soon after building his prototype he garnered interest from local farmers and agronomists who were looking for exactly what he had invented – an easily installed, affordable Yield Monitor that was easy to use. Three harvest seasons later, the technology, hardware components and software have evolved significantly in collaboration with Troo Corp providing a powerful web mapping platform.
