Remote pest monitoring
We like to think we are an early adapter to applications of technology on the farm. We have been using remote soil moisture tracking for more than eight years now, to make irrigation decisions. We combine it with data from our on-site weather station to calculate precise watering needs for each block of the orchard. We are currently experimenting with remote monitoring of pest insects (picture below). I will probably write a detailed post on this later.
