When it comes to protecting fruit tree blossoms against frost, it is important to monitor the temperature of your orchard or vineyard. This way you can take timely action when the blossoms are in danger of freezing. Of course, it is difficult to check the temperature every few minutes. Ideally, you should be able to remotely monitor the temperature in the orchard. Fortunately, there are automatic systems that alert you when the temperature is too low. Live recording of temperature in orchards, vineyards and other remote locations can help you take timely action.

Which system?

To properly measure the temperature in an orchard and protect your blossoms, you need the right materials. Detecting frost may seem like a simple task, but in practice it is a little less easy. Your frost detection system must be able to measure the temperature quickly and accurately and send that information to the cloud. It is important that you can monitor the temperature live every minute.

Real-time frost detection

Protection against frost thus turns out not to be as easy as initially thought. These requirements associated with the frost detection system turn a simple task into a complex technological challenge. Crodeon offers the simple solution: Reporter.

Timely warning to protect your blossoms

With the right system, you get timely alarm notifications so you can immediately trigger your heat gun or overhead irrigation. Protecting fruit tree blossoms from freezing thus becomes much less of a challenge.

The Crodeon weather station comes equipped with its own solar panel and internal battery which allows it to keep measuring day and night. All measurements are transmitted live to the cloud for real-time monitoring. The Dashboard also offers the ability to export the data via Excel or access it via API. Even in prolonged overcast conditions, Reporter continues to work correctly so your blossom protection remains a given.

Reporter is equipped with a GSM network connection. This allows the system to continue to communicate correctly with the cloud even in the most remote areas. Reporter was developed to withstand the harshest wind and rain. Reporter's plug-and-play system allows you to choose which sensors you want to use. Such as temperature, humidity, leaf wetness or soil moisture.

An easy and reliable weather station

Rest assured, even during cold nights.

When you’re lying awake, just take a peek at your smartphone and you know you’ll be able to stay in bed. Or just wait until Reporter sends a live alarm notification when the temperature you set is reached. Protecting fruit tree blossoms from freezing with frost detection has thus become an indispensable part of the fruit grower's modern orchard.
