Scarab Precision is a software-base service for protected horticulture that keeps your team on top of their crop scouting information with high precision pest and disease maps, charts and tables.
Using Scarab’s quick data collection software, scouts spend their time looking for pests and diseases in the crop, and very little on data entry. With GPS and timestamps on all records you know exactly where your scouts were and how effectively they are working.
Maps show you precisely where your pests and diseases are located allowing you to target your interventions and make the most of your chemicals and biological agents. Charts and tables help you keep track of developments. Different reports target different people on your team, from those that just need the overview, to those that need to know every detail. Anonymous benchmarking against other farms in your area tell you how well you’re doing.
And we are with you all the way. We train your people on how to use the system. We follow up with regular on-site audits of the scouts and help your team interpret results and get the most out of the system. We keep a daily eye on your farm and ensure that everything runs smoothly.
“It’s given us control. It’s given us real-time information, so we’ve been able to react and it’s given us historical data, so we’ve been able to learn from the past and apply that to the future… and it’s definitely saved us significant amounts of money.”
Billy Coulson, Owner,
“With our pests and diseases under control, above all powdery, head botrytis, and downy, we were able to increase our exportable stems by 7.5% in the first year.”
Enrique León, Production Manager
“The training involved the scouts, and included the supervisors, the sprayers and the farm’s management team.”
