Just three inches high by three inches wide the new IPM SCOPE runs off a computer, either PC or laptop and sends digital images straight to the screen. With magnification rates from 40x to 140x the instrument combines power with portability, and combined with a laptop can be used in the field. Once viewed, magnified material can be frozen, stored, emailed or printed in the usual way.
Headland’s sales and marketing director, Andy Russell, sees the IPM SCOPE being used widely in the industry in many different contexts. “It’s a great tool for turf managers who can either look at issues directly on their turf or use it to examine soil samples,” he says. “Magnified images can then be emailed on for analysis or consultation, or stored for reference. The product also has great potential in education and horticulture.”
Headland’s IPM SCOPE has a recommended retail price of around £260.
