Tridge summary

Representatives from the University of Oklahoma are working with PERU-Hub to install five meteorological stations and eleven soil nodules in San Martín, Peru. These devices will provide real-time information on climatic events and surface conditions, helping improve irrigation decision-making and phytosanitary control in crop fields. The soil nodules will monitor humidity, temperature, and electrical conductivity, while the weather stations will provide more precise information on temperature changes and rainfall patterns. This information will be used to make better irrigation decisions and control pests and diseases in the region.
