Sentinel 1 has returned to SARDI’s Nuriootpa research centre for its second trial in the Barossa.

The unit features one six-metre insect trap, a two-metre insect suction trap and two spore suction traps, as well as an onboard weather station. This site also collects data for targets captured by lure-based traps. Priority pests and pathogens for wine and grains are targeted for identification at this site.

Weather and data for pest and pathogens trapped by the suction traps are shared via the data dashboard (link below). Lure-trap target counts are updated weekly and shared on this page.
