Balkema Seed Counter

Count within 2 seconds

Load the seeds on the tray and press the button. Within 2 seconds the amount will appear on the screen.


The Balkema Seed Counter is a standalone device. However, if you want to transfer the counted amount to your PC, you need only to plug in the USB cable. No software installation is needed.

Precision > 99.5%

Our sophisticated algorithms make sure that your count is always close to perfect. Time after time.

Small footprint

Because of its small footprint, the Balkema Seed Counter fits on every normal desk.


Our algorithm is able to count almost all crops: Maize, Bean, Sunflower, Tomato, Pepper, Cucumber, Brassicas, Cereals, etc. All seeds bigger than 0.8 mm in diameter are standard possible. If the seeds are smaller, or if you are not sure we will be able to count your crop, please contact us. We’re happy to test it out – and develop a new step to our algorithm when needed.

Biometrics Module

With our biometrics module, you will get the area, perimeter, long axis, short axis, eccentricity and circularity. For each metric, mean, standard deviation, bar graphs and outlier removal are available.
