integrated system to provide a simplified solution for growers, agronomists and
researchers to monitor the levels of various pest species in their crops.

growers, has chosen the 2015 National Horticulture Convention to unveil this
unique tool so that Australian growers and their advisors can better monitor
the pest dynamics in their crops,” said AUSVEG spokesperson Lauren
