Agricultural & Farming Scales

Scaletec offers weighing products for a variety of agriculture-related needs, from animal weighing to grain measurement. NRCS-approved scales are suitable for use in trade, and provide the required verification for crop harvesting prior to sale.

Washdown or waterproofing capability allows equipment to be hosed down thoroughly, which is ideal for wineries, while dynamic weighing allows accurate measurement of liquid ingredients.

Hanging scales are used to safely measure suspended items, while platform and floor scales accommodate pallets, barrels and other large items. Our grain scales help farmers and merchants gauge grain consistency during the grading process.

Agricultural/ Farming Help

Q: Who uses agricultural and farming scales?

Whilst these scales are primarily designed with farmers in mind, they are often used within a wide variety of outdoor environments. We have compiled a short list of some of the most popular uses/ industries that use agricultural and farming scales:

  • Wineries - Wineries use these scales to measure quantities of grapes used for producing barrels of wine and alcohol.
  • Crop farmers - Similar to wineries, farmers that grow wheat, maize, cereals and other grains will use weighing scales to ensure that each bundle of grain is of optimum weight. Moisture analysers and other scales such as the CQT grain scales can be used to detect the weight of yields or measure the total moisture content in each batch.
  • Horticulture/ gardening - Agricultural scales are particularly useful in gardening or horticulture for measuring quantities of fertilizer. Moreover, some scales are used to weigh the added chemicals, such as lime, that go into fertilizers to ensure that they remain at the correct PH level for growing particular crops.
  • Orchards - Fruit orchard workers will use scales to weigh sacks of fruit after picking. Depending on the type of fruit, fertilizer ingredients may also be weighed to ensure the correct soil PH level.
