Remote Monitoring Systems are a fairly new development within the arena of sugaring. This technology allows producers to monitor the tubing system set up within the sugar bush. If pressure drops, an alert goes out on a tablet or phone, allowing the producer to know which line is having problems. This greatly reduces the time needed to find and solve a problem with a line. In many cases, squirrels chew holes in the tubing, causing pressure to drop leading to a loss of sap collection. Cornell University's Director of the Uihlein Forest, Mike Farrell, explains the remote monitoring system in this video.
