The new Grain Cart Scale App from Central City Scale will allow you to upgrade your grain cart with to capture key information at harvest time.

Any device that's in range of the transmitter can show, in real time, what's happening with the cart.

Central City Scale launches new system that allows your grain cart to 'report' to your smart phone.

The system uses a patent pending Agrimetics Libra Bluetooth transmitter that installs on the grain cart and wires to the junction box connected to the weigh bars. Information about cart weight can be captured on a tablet or smart phone and the information can be stored in a cloud environment. Once wired up the system turns your grain cart into a scale indicator. Cloud connectivity unifies the system across your entire operation.

Using the system crop flow transactions can be emailed or optionally stored securely in the cloud for access wherever you are. The system is wireless and battery powered so installation is simple and the company says you can get through a harvest without replacing the battery in the weigh bar monitor. The system is also built to stand up to the extremes of farming  from weather to vibration. The system allows you to manage harvest records without log books, flash drives or printers.
