Unlike other currently available grain monitoring devices, acquiring AgZone BINLogic does not require an up-front equipment payment. The wireless solution’s functionality is available through an affordable annual subscription.

BINLogic in action

Jeff Van Ryssel, President at Van Ryssel Farms in Oakbank, Man., has been using BINLogic daily since mid-August 2023 after it was installed in wheat and oat bins. According to Van Ryssel, it is greatly beneficial to access the moisture and temperature data from his phone at any point.

He also pointed out the usefulness of alerts that can be configured through the app. “Once in the summer, I got a high-temperature alert on one of the bins,” he explained. “We had the fans off because it had been raining for almost a week, and the temperature inside a wheat bin exceeded 30 degrees. I walked over to the bin to turn on the fans, and the grain cooled down within the next couple of hours. BINLogic is very handy and an excellent investment.”

BINLogic offers grain monitoring data through a user-friendly and easy-to-understand mobile or web-based app, so growers can make quick, informed decisions for their operations.
