Crop Monitoring Benefits

Benefits to growers include (1) reduction of risk and prevention of losses by early detection of pest problems, (2) potential reduction of pesticide costs if unnecessary treatments are prevented, and (3) general value of having periodic information on status of crop which represents a reduction of grower's time applied to periodic field inspection.
