Arkansas AgTech Startup Gets NSF Grant for Pest Monitoring System

Arkansas-based AgTech startup, SolaRid, announced that it was awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to continue developing its pest management product. The SolaRid system is designed to operate on solar power in and around agricultural fields and serve as a pest monitoring device that attracts, captures and kills various common insects. The device is also being designed to utilize artificial intelligence (AI) in identifying insects and sending its finding information to handheld devices through apps which can provide recommendations for addressing pest related concerns.
