Collecting field data is vital in creating effective crop defense solutions. Data can be obtained through monitoring using traps and attractants. The dynamics of the population in the agricultural space can also be observed and noted. This data can be used to decide when and how to take action to increase efficiency.
Methods for monitoring insects must be practical. Some visual monitoring systems, although effective and traditional, are laborious, complex and demand extra resources, such as specialized labor. Traps with semiochemical baits are specific for the target insects and therefore very easy to inspect and identify the species that threaten your crop. Another advantage is that they do not require specialized labor. The interpretation of the data is also easier and more direct, which allows for quick decision-making.
