At The Harvest Academy, we believe in the importance of continuous learning, collaboration, and environmental stewardship to ensure a sustainable future for agriculture.

The Harvest Academy is a one-of-a-kind combine education and training program designed to provide farmers and agriculture professionals with the knowledge and skills needed to optimize harvest processes. We’re excited to collaborate with you on uniquely tailored, in-person combine clinic sessions and events on how to reduce harvest loss; maximize yields, increase capacity, improve seed quality, revenues and efficiencies. Clinics will present new concepts, tackle common oversights, and focus on hands-on tips and the theory of optimal combine performance.

A Team of Experts Delivering Technical Excellence.

After years of sharing his expertise with equipment dealers and farmers at combine and seed workshops and at clinics at farms, Marcel Kringe, Founder and CEO of Bushel Plus and an expert in combine calibration, tapped his team of product specialists, agronomists and agriculture engineers to create and deliver The Harvest Academy.

Marcel Kringe | CEO & Founder of Bushel Plus Ltd.

Many people are amazed to learn from us that the combine is not a set it and forget it piece of equipment during harvest – that there are a number of tips to consider and important metrics that can be set up – and even before harvest starts,” said Marcel Kringe, Bushel Plus founder and CEO. “Simply driving your combine slowly is a waste of time. The combine is one of the most fascinating, important and complex machines on the farm.. The season and even subtle straw conditions can influence performance, which in turn can affect yields. We are bringing Bushel Plus Harvest Academy to North America so farmers and Ag Professionals can learn more details about different settings that can be calibrated so they can achieve optimal combine efficiency.”


Our team of experts deliver wide-ranging expertise in sessions and at events on pre-harvest maintenance, equipment operation, technology integration, safety, cost-effective harvest practices and resource allocation, and much more. Teachings will also apply to combines with automation where proper calibration is critical.

Marcel and the team at Bushel Plus do a fantastic job on breaking down the in-season and year over year financial impacts of preventative maintenance on your headers, adjustments in the guts of the combine for increased efficiencies in horsepower, fuel consumptions, and most importantly, covering more acres. These combine clinics are great for learning your new machines as well as tweaking ol’ reliable.

I’m so glad I attended this combine clinic from Bushel Plus. Very educational and informative, the set up was much appreciated, and the details learned helped so much in setting up my new combine. The tips and tricks for canola are unmatched and made a big difference at harvest. I would highly recommend attending it and hope to again. Remember to take notes as Marcel is a valuable source of information.
