The magazine Jordbruksaktuellt, Sweden’s largest independent industry magazine in agriculture, published an article about GrainCloud, a new project funded by the Swedish Board of Agriculture via the innovation support EIP-Agri. The consortium, including CNet, consists of seven partners with expert expertise together with the company Skandia Elevator in Arentorp who will develop a solution to meet higher demands from the market on transparency in the value chain of the future and the need to increase food safety on grain-based food through traceability.
The digital storage facility of the future will be able to automatically keep track of the amount of grain that has been taken in from fields, where it is stored, how it has been stored and for how long. It will also be able to track maintenance needs before malfunctions occur and assist farmers with service reminders, says Joakim Larsson, CEO and co-owner of Skandia Elevator. Grain Cloud is primarily designed for new facilities but will also be able to be integrated into older machine systems.
