A Saskatoon based company took the Grand Prize in the Manitoba Ag Days Innovation Showcase this year.

The Innovation Awards were held online this year with Adaptive Agricultural Solutions taking home over $17,000 in cash and prizes for their Binstick.

The Binstick is an electronic and mobile ready portable grain probe that contains temperature and humidity sensors for grain bin monitoring and drying.

Founder Steve Rogoshchewsky says Binstick is a complement to their Bindapt and Bindapt Pro Systems and turns any aeration bin into a smart bin.

"The Binstick is a segmented stick with a bunch of sensors in it that you install from the top of the bin down. With an easy turn handle and then you unclick the handle and you add another segment, connect the wires and push sensors into a full or partially full grain bin. It basically completes the grain drying feedback loop that we created."

He notes you can move the Binstick from bin to bin and it serves as a great tool for monitoring your grain after the grain drying is complete.

The Farmers Choice Grand Prize was awarded to Bar C Innovation out of Kansas for their Quick Pin Hitch Pin.

The Quick Pin is a new, innovative and redesigned hitch pin making for faster, easier unhooking of implements.

Bar C Innovations takes home over $12,000 in cash and prizes.
