Finally, it’s on. Together with farmers and consultants, we have identified almost 1,000 areas that we plan to sample in the coming weeks. We start in the Darmstadt area. Our proprietary app is also being used for the first time. It shows us the locations of the fields, navigates us to the field using Google Maps, serves to collect information in the field and automatically assigns unique sample numbers to the sampled weeds so that later resistance results from the greenhouse can be reliably associated.

It is just over 20 degrees today and isn’t raining, so best conditions.
