Spectrum Receives 18th AE50 Award

Spectrum Technologies recently received its 18th AE50 Award from the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers.

The prestigious AE50 award represents the best and brightest products developed throughout the world for the agricultural, food and biological systems industries expected to save producers time, costs and labor while improving user safety.


Recognizing the need for affordable weather recording in remote microclimates, Spectrum has developed the WatchDog 1000 Series Micro Stations as user-friendly devices to capture, process and store weather history throughout the growing season. These powerful recorders present current and historical weather data, degree-day calculations and plant disease alerts on location. Create your own station with multiple sensor options or purchase pre-packaged Plant Disease, Plant Growth, or Irrigation Micro Stations.

Mike Dunning, weather products manager for Spectrum, explains that the WatchDog 1000 Series Micro Stations combine the inexpensive reliability of simple data loggers with pre-packaged sensors specific to a growers micro-environment need. Growers enhance their stations with university-validated disease models and grower-defined additional sensors, sold separately.
