Technology Lets You Document, Share Information From the Field

Updated: 03/25/2014 @ 4:51pm

Organize, store, and share findings when scouting fields with MyTraps Scout. The new technology, developed by Spensa Technologies, Inc., lets users use their mobile device to document findings using texts, photographs, audio, and video.

"Scouting reports are synchronized with MyTraps.com, where users can access data, see trends, and determine trouble areas on their property," says Johnny Park, president and CEO of Spensa Technologies, Inc. "The reports are automatically and securely stored. They can be reviewed by chronology or geography, and are easily shared via email."

Park, who is a research assistant professor in Purdue University's school of electrical and computer engineering, adds that MyTraps Scout could increase transparency and trust between crop advisers and farmers.

"When notes are taken using GPS-enabled mobile devices, growers can revisit the exact locations on a scouting trip," he explains. "Photographs, georeferences, and time stamps make communicating the findings much clearer."

In addition, new features have been added to MyTraps.com, which also works with Z-Trap, the company's pest management solution that detects the target insects it has trapped and sends data wirelessly to a mobile phone or computer.

"Users now can manage multiple locations from MyTraps.com, organize locations by client, and receive weekly reports via email, including scouting notes and trap captures," Park says. "Users also now can view trap data on a map, graph, or chart view with MyTraps.com."
