Eric Economon, of the Agricultural Research Council in Pretoria, South Africa, is a man of firsts. Eric bought the first ASD instrument sold in South Africa over a decade ago. And now, with his brand new FieldSpec® 4, Eric is the first South African customer to purchase an ASD instrument through our new partner, PANalytical-South Africa. Eric uses a variety of remote sensing and ground truthing techniques to monitor the biology of South Africa, sometimes in very remote areas. He uses the FieldSpec 4 to ground truth invasive biological species that can affect South Africa's agricultural market. Congrats on your new purchase, Eric!
