In October 2011 NZ awoke to the news that the container ship MV Rena had run aground off the coast of Tauranga on the Astrolabe Reef.
Soon after salvage crews started work on recovering the Rena, Harvest was called in to provide a weather station and webcam located on the bridge to
provide weather information for the salvers and helicopter pilots. We have put together photos in a timelapse from the 22nd Dec 2011 to the 10th January
showing some of the salvage effort. Around halfway through the Rena can be seen to break in half during a storm and then the final few images show the
final moments before the stern sinks - complete with Harvest weather station and webcam. Click here to see the
We often get asked how to use soil moisture readings for irrigation. We push data for many clients to third party providers who our customers have
contracted to provide them with management advice on such things as when and how much to irrigate. However some of our customers want to figure out
how to irrigate themselves or even if they use a third party provider they are interested in how the decisions are made. So we have written a short
information sheet on this subject. This is not applicable to fruit such as grapes and kiwifruit if the plants are purposely being stressed in order
to adjust the sugar levels. To view this document click here.
TVNZ's Rural Delivery show which aired on the 11th October featured a segment on Harvest Electronics involvement in the dairy industry. The video
can be viewed on TVNZ OnDemand or via Youtube. To see the video on Youtube click here.
Harvest is pleased to announce the release of the Extended Long Range Remote (XLR) for use as a repeater or as a control solution. The XLR alongside
the ITU G2 allows for more monitoring and control options on sites that are very large, have wireless coverage issues due to terrain or require
complex control solutions.
The Harvest team has continued to grow with Daniel Broome joining the tech support team and Dr. Ehsan Tabatabaei Yazdi joining the software team.
