The Smart Orchard project — a collaboration to understand the value of sensors and other precision agriculture technology to inform orchard management — will host a field day for the tree fruit industry on Friday, July 30, in Grandview, Washington.
Located in a highly variable Honeycrisp block owned by Washington Fruit and Produce, the Smart Orchard project hosts dozens of sensors and provides a central location for research projects. The project is a partnership between the Washington Tree Fruit Research Commission, Washington State University and Innov8.ag, a Walla Walla, Washington based company that helps growers adopt data-driven farming.
The field day will run from 9 a.m. to noon and attendees are welcome to drop in as their schedule allows. The location is 3142 N. County Line, in Grandview.
