Testing with Syngenta in flower strips and natural field margins, summer 2020
During July 2020 we tested our sensor technology with Syngenta at Lystrup gods in Denmark. Placing sensors in a natural field margin and in a planted flower strip. We compared the insect activity data from the sensor with observations and gathered insects for identification, done by entomologist Stine Kramer Jacobsen from the Section of Organismal Biology at the University of Copenhagen.
This was only a small pilot project, but it gave us many new insights and ideas for future projects and potential use of our sensor technology. Focusing on the potential in using the sensors to determine biodiversity and if flower strips are a viable a way of changing insect activity in farmers’ fields.
