DICKEY-john introduces the GAC500 XT, a semi-portable moisture tester that provides fast, consistent results in the field and on the farm. Made with the same technology that created the federal standard GAC2100 for elevators, the newest GAC unit delivers the same accuracy for less than half the price.

With the GAC500 XT, producers now have access to affordable, reliable moisture, temperature and test weight readings for applications including grains, cereals, oilseeds, grass seeds, vegetable seeds and beans.

Testing with the GAC500 XT is easy: choose your grain, load the hopper and press a button. No leveling or adjusting samples.

Onset Computer Corporation introduces the HOBO Pendant Event Logger, a miniature, low-cost data logger for measuring and recording rainfall and air temperature.

The logger connects to most standard tipping-bucket rain gauges to record rainfall rates and duration, thus eliminating the need to manually read rain gauges. Unlike most rainfall loggers, which record rainfall activity at fixed intervals, the HOBO Pendant Event records data with each tip of the rain gauge bucket. This is a particular advantage in applications where peak rainfall rates need to be determined. An internal temperature sensor enables the logger to be used in a solar radiation shield to measure temperature.
