Features & Benefit
Avoid spray drift and maximize application results with this portable and connected handheld weather meter. Off-target pesticide drift can not only cause damage to nearby vulnerable crops but also pose a serious threat to people, livestock, wildlife, and the surrounding community.
Farmers put themselves and their operations at risk every time they spray a field without documenting the wind speed and environmental conditions. The 3550AG with Bluetooth Connectivity makes it easy to instantly capture and log accurate, field-level weather data with just one-click.
Field-level Environmental Monitoring for Reliable Monitoring
It is critical to measure relative humidity, wind speed and wind direction at field-level to minimize waste and maximize safety when spraying. The on-site weather at time of application has a significant impact on the risk of drift. Best management practices include checking weather at the site of application to ensure safe and effective spraying. With a built-in digital compass, the 3550AG measures all relevant environmental conditions for spraying including wind direction.
Easy Data Recording using the Free Kestrel App
As regulations surrounding drift management get tighter and media and public attention continues to increase, the stakes are higher than ever for applicators and farmers when it comes to accountability. It’s imperative to document spray conditions to defend against costly litigation and protect the future of your operation. The Kestrel app makes it easy to do by wirelessly connecting to the 3550 so you're able to view, log, and manage weather data on a mobile device. Now you can document field data right at the time of spray application -- forget pen and paper notes that can get lost or attempting to data log hours after the application when you’re back in the office and likely to forget. With just one click, the Snapshot feature in the app captures and saves an instant record of all live measurements along with a GPS-based timestamp. Conveniently export historical data as valuable documented evidence that you sprayed within acceptable weather conditions.
Pocket sized, rugged, waterproof, affordable, easy-to-use and equipped with on-unit data logging and wireless data retrieval for monitoring and reporting, the Kestrel 3550AG is your trusted weather guide for spraying and farming.
The new 3550AG meter has Bluetooth connectivity to pair with the Kestrel app for the ability to wirelessly view, share, and export weather data from a mobile device. Download the Kestrel app from the app store to take advantage of the all the features available.
