In week 16 we were visiting our partners from Smart Yields in Colorado, USA.
Smart Yields are using the Orbit 3 sensors to help local and independent farmers monitor the air temperature around in their orchards. The temperature measurements are shown in real-time in an app developed by Smart Yields and the farmers receive alarms if the temperature exceed the set limits.
This way they can ensure that the late spring frost does not damage or destroy the buds and tree crops (and potentially their business) – and in addition give them savings on the heating costs.
We are looking forward to an even more “fruitful” partnership with Smart Yields in the future – and to be part of their mission of providing useful insights by combining smart sensors with smart software.
Helping small to medium-sized farmers grow more with less by providing access to intelligence through record-keeping and data-monitoring.
