Loaner Sensor Program

The loaner sensor program is an outreach program designed to introduce interested growers to the technology developed by the Efficient Vineyard researchers. It involves a technician from the Lake Erie Regional Grape Program coming out to the farm to install or attach scanners and computers to existing equipment. The subsequent data collection is then completed during normal activity such as pesticide spraying. Once the data is collected it can be sent back to researchers to generate a prescription map. The DualEM soil sensor requires a technician to operate so if you would like to have a soil scan done of your vineyard, please contact the Portland, NY Cornell Extension office and make an appointment.
