The partnership of Montana State University Western Agricultural Research Center and Utah State University leads to the development of application that could monitor and control codling moths and fire blights in crops.
The Temperature Resource and Alert for Pests (TRAPS) application provides site-specific information in controlling pests in farms. Moreover, this application helps growers in determining the best time to apply treatments to their trees.
Furthermore, it also tracks the temperature to predict the invasion of pests. It can also predict the risks of bacterial plant disease to prevent blights and pests.
