New technology makes it easier to tap maple tress for syrup. Often we get over- technologized with another app to make things easier. In this report….that is not the case.
Large maple syrup producers use interconnected lines to gather the sap from maple trees to the sugar houses. In the past, these lines got bent….pulled down ….or chewed by wild life.
Maple producers now have monitoring systems to keep an electronic eye on the sap vacuum lines. The data is transmitted to a computer or smart phone showing if there is a break in the line and where it is located. Technology in this case makes gathering the maple sap a more efficient operation.
