From November 10 to 16, 2019, agri technica, the world’s top agricultural machinery exhibition, was held in Hanover exhibition hall, Germany. As the largest agricultural machinery exhibition in the world, the exhibition selected 291 innovative technologies and products submitted by leading agricultural machinery exhibitors from all over the world, and finally awarded a total of one innovation Gold Award and 39 innovation silver awards. These award-winning technologies and products cover agricultural machinery, equipment and farm investment from sowing and harvesting to storage of the whole industrial chain, which not only brings extraordinary innovation experience to the field of agricultural machinery, but also has a profound impact on improving operating efficiency, reducing costs, intelligent development, environmental protection, etc.

For example, we know that in order to minimize the impact on the environment and optimize the yield of crops, it is important to know the actual content of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium (NPK) in natural fertilizer accurately. This time, an innovative precision sensor technology won the silver medal can determine the content of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium salt in fertilizer by using the nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) sensor.
In this way, the farmers can accurately measure the nutrients in the natural fertilizer in real time without relying on the laboratory analysis, and apply fertilizer pertinently, so as to improve the fertilization efficiency, achieve the fertilizer supply balance of crops, reduce the problems of excessive fertilization and insufficient fertility, and help the farmers achieve the goal of low input and high yield.
N, P, K (NPK) sensor
It is understood that this new technology was developed by Samson Agro, a Danish enterprise. Samson said the new sensor technology could replace the existing measurement system. In the past, the detection of the nutritional value of natural fertilizers generally depended on the measurement of conductivity or near-infrared spectroscopy. The new NPK sensor can directly measure the NPK content of all types of natural fertilizers without using the natural fertilizer database for sensor calibration or user calibration.
