About this product

The Agreto HFM II hay and straw moisture meter is a fast determination device for measuring the moisture of compressed hay and straw.

This is measured by inserting the lance into the bale. The result is displayed in real time. Application areas of the hay and straw moisture meter:

  • Producing hay and straw – When harvesting forage, a lot depends on timing. The moisture of the material determines when it should be baled. If the moisture is low enough, baling can be started or continued.
  • Drying hay – Drying should be done as energy-efficiently as possible. The moisture is continuously monitored so that the drying process can be finished exactly at the right moment.
  • Trading with hay and straw – Buyers of hay and straw want to buy untainted goods with a low moisture content. To avoid any complaints, sellers should prevent that excessively wet bales are sold.
  • Feeding hay – High feed quality is the foundation for successful livestock farming. The moisture content of bales of hay is an important quality factor for animal farmers.
  • Moisture control when harvesting, and during purchase and sale
  • Ensures food quality and prevents damage through fungal decay or rot
  • Increases storage security and prevents the risk of fire
  • Saves time and costs due to unusable bales
