Trapview, electronic delta trap for remote monitoring of moths

f01In our winery in Sequals, two electronic traps have been applied to control moths in the vineyards treated with the green technique called “sexual confusion”.

The device takes daily pictures of the sticky plate with insect placed in the trap and sends them via GPRS connection to ERSA ( regional agency for rural development) in Pordenone.

The device is self-sufficient in the field because it is powered by a battery that is charged with solar panels, fixed on a pole.

Using this trap is useful to control the daily capture situation and to automatically count moths in traps with a software. Until now this has been done manually, since the system is still in an experimental phase.

There is no doubt that this system is the most useful one, since it is already working properly by remote controlling the wineries. In fact, it doesn’t  require to be phisically in the vineyard and daily control permits to detect the presence of the moths.

About Us

Four hundred years amongst vineyards and an infinite passion for wine. The history of the Armani family and that of viticulture in the Adige Valley, between the provinces of Trento and Verona, have been evolving together, without interruption, for more than 4 centuries. Today  “Albino Armani Viticoltori dal 1607” means territory, or rather territories. The historical property in Dolcè, in the Adige Valley in the province of Verona, is one of 3 wineries located in the region Veneto: one other is to be found in Marano, in the Valpolicella Classico area, and one  in the province of Treviso, in San Polo di Piave, where our biodynamic wines are produced. Two more wineries are located in the regions Trentino and Friuli. All five wineries watch over their territories, vinifying the grapes of the surrounding vineyards. In each of them the common thread is a terroir reflecting its specific particular character in the wines springing from its soil. The headquarters remain in Dolcè, where the “Conservatoria”, a project for safeguarding local grape varieties in danger of extinction, can be visited.
