The TrackerSP utilizes GPRS to communicate with the grower. Key features include, but are not limited to: an easy installation directly inside the control panel box, the ability to send alert messages to mobile phones and e-mail addresses, and the option to further monitor and control the field operation through the specially designed Valley Tracker website (www.ValleyTracker.com).
