Counting and measuring seeds and grains

Thursday, 17 September, 2009 | Supplied by: Next Instruments Pty Ltd

SeedCount Australasia and Weiss Enterprises have licensed their SeedCount and CornCount Image Analysis systems to Stadvis. The license transfers the worldwide rights for manufacturing, sales and marketing for SeedCount and CornCount to Stadvis Pty Ltd, a manufacturer of NIR analysers for the grains and food industries.

SeedCount and CornCount, as their names imply, count and measure the physical attributes of grains, oil seeds and corn kernels. These systems are based on a flat bed scanner, sample trays for different seeds and a dedicated image analysis software package that measures a broad range of physical attributes of the seeds. These attributes include length, width, roundness, colour, black point, black tip, broken grains, dockage, screenings, chalk in rice and others.

The benefit of using image analysis for measuring physical attributes over human inspection are that image analysis is non subjective and a permanent record of the data can be retained. As well, image analysis is far quicker and requires little or no operator skill.

Stadvis’ range of NIR analysers is marketing through NIR Technology Systems, a division of Stadvis. The SeedCount and CornCount products complement NIR Technology Systems range of Cropscan NIR analysers which measure protein, oil and moisture in grains and oil seeds.
