iOptiSeed Bin Optimizer is applicable to any type of seeding equipment i.e. equipment that has compartments/tubes/bins containing seeds, grains etc. The app defines how to place seeds and grains in the bins of a seeder machine in order to achieve optimization of time while seeding large pieces of land. It also solves the problems that many farmers are facing, the necessity to refill the bins when covering larger area. iOptiSeed Bin Optimizer calculates which bin a certain product needs to be placed in in order to get the maximum acres seeded before there is a need for refill. The application gives you a calculation in seconds and helps you find the most efficient way of placing products in bins.
The app takes into consideration different types of measures such as product density, the volume of the bins etc. The measures considered are bushels, acres and density.
