A threat to date farming
Red Palm Weevil (R. ferrugineus) is a rapidly growing problem in date palm, causing millions of dollars worth economic loss each year and endangering the livelihood of 50 million farmers.
Early detection is critical for effective control, but manual inspections are expensive and often only detect the problem after damage has already been done.
Spotta is developing a 24/7 monitoring solution for early detection of Red palm weevil. Real time reporting allows stakeholders make the right intervention, at the right time reducing palm mortality.
Our Pods attract, detect and identify insects using a smart machine vision system. They report to our Console, which allows detailed insights into pest activity and trends
