Smartfield™ provides our users with many tools and services; unique services that allow the user to make better-informed management decisions regarding their crops remotely via CropInsight or other detailed reporting.
The Standard SmartCrop® sensor measures crop canopy temperature using an infrared thermometer and relays the information back to the Base Station.
Research has shown canopy temperature to be a significant measurement of crop stress. If the temperature of the plant is above optimal temperature for an extended period of time, the metabolic processes become less efficient; the plant does not show as much growth, therefore, causing detriment to the yield.
