METOS® by Pessl Instruments support in the Climate-Smart Camelina Project
CLIMATE-SMART CAMELINA PROJECT
Weiz, Austria, August 2023 – Pessl Instruments, a leading global developer and provider of smart agriculture technological solutions, is joining a Climate-Smart Camelina project as a provider of hardware solutions.
EarthDaily Agro and Global Clean Energy announced partnership to increase the adoption of camelina in the renewable fuels marketplace through Climate-Smart Camelina Project, a $30 million USDA worth project, granted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture – USDA Climate-Smart Commodities Grant Program.
The purpose of the project is to develop camelina as an ultra-low carbon renewable fuel feedstock and build associated climate-smart renewable fuels markets.
“The initial project will focus on the Western U.S., with plans to expand to other regions of the world deemed suitable for camelina production. Because camelina has not historically been a widely cultivated crop, EarthDaily Agro will produce the first full-cycle economic viability and production yield dataset to serve as the basis for mainstream cultivation and renewable fuel production,”
as stated in the official press release of the project.
METOS® by Pessl Instruments is joining the project as a hardware provider, namely the weather station IMT300 and CropVIEW®, together with Weather Forecast and Disease modeling solutions. Our solutions will play a vital role in plant development and soil health and provide the project with detailed information on bushels of camelina produced per inch of water, and other metrics, and also the ability to model crop growth stage and disease/insects that could be impacting crop productivity.
