FruitFrost project Plantenna in BNR Podcast

Wednesday, 1 April 2020
FruitFrost project in which sensors measure the temperature of plants and small windmills keep the soil frost-free.

Professor Bas van de Wiel, researcher at the 4TU Plantenna programme, tells BNR news radio about the FruitFrost project in which sensors measure the temperature of plants and small windmills keep the soil frost-free. A great help for growers and farmers who now have to get out of bed to save the plants. In the near future, sensors will automatically indicate whether help is needed and turn it on themselves.
