1. A method for remotely monitoring an agricultural asset at a remote location, the method comprising:

  • providing a monitoring system comprising at least one condition sensor in communication with the agricultural asset so as to be arranged to sense a respective asset condition of the agricultural asset, a controller at the remote location which is arranged for communication with said at least one condition sensor and which includes a prescribed notification criterion associated with said at least one condition sensor stored thereon, and a central monitoring system located separately from the remote location and arranged for communication with the controller; and

    using the controller;

    periodically sampling the respective asset condition of the agricultural asset sensed by said at least one condition sensor;

    comparing each sampled asset condition sensed by said at least one condition sensor to the prescribed notification criterion and determining a notification condition if the sampled asset condition meets the prescribed notification criterion; and

    transmitting a notification signal to a central monitoring system in response to determination of a notification condition.
