Denmark's GylleSMS, a new kind of early warning system


I expect you will all agree that nothing can dampen a morning jaunt or coffee on the terrace like the smell of freshly spread manure. We aren't talking about the mild pong from a few cows in a field, but rather a full-on liquified spray fest. Well the Danish have a new SMS service to allow farmers the ability to alert their neighbors before they get to work on the fields. Called GylleSMS -- that's "ManureSMS" for the English speakers out there -- the SMS contains all the gooey details about when and where there would be spreading near you. Also under consideration by the farmers is a voting system whereby people near a farm can just say, "No! No! The wind may blow!"
