How are farmers affected by climate change?

Growers used to be able to rely upon predictable weather patterns during the growing season. Here in the Southeast, for instance, growers used to rely on a consistent summer rainfall to help their crops .

Why aren't my sensors responding?

Farmers and consultants call, text, and email us every day to assist them in viewing their sensors. It is important that The Fields page in the Trellis Dashboard allows users to see an overview of each field, and whether the weighted average of the sensors in the field are wet, ok, or dry, based on the soil texture, crop type, and recorded readings. But the devil is in the details, right? How do you make sense of the soil moisture charts and use them to make decisions?

The Truth about Bees

We might take it for granted, but honey bee pollination is essential to produce many fruits, vegetables, and nuts we love and enjoy everyday. Unfortunately, we're currently faced with an alarming supply and demand challenge. In the U.S., we're growing more crops that require pollination. At the same time, the honey bee population continues to decline, forcing farmers to turn to alternative methods to pollinate their crops.
