THE ENEMY OF THE DATE PALM:

THE RED PALM WEEVIL

CURRENT SOLUTIONS ARE

INEFFECTIVE, COSTLY, AND HARM TREES

spacer-1
The Weevil’s damage to trees is hidden deep inside the tree’s vascular system, not easily detected
Tree-by-tree manual inspection is not viable; done at very late stages of infestation
Acoustic sensors are costly, not applied to each tree, deliver false positives & damage trees
Chemicals are costly, damage trees and environment, and can cause ineligibility for export

Collects, processes and analyzes multispectral and thermal data from drone and satellite imagery

Tracks and monitors physiological changes in date palms using unique algorithms and proprietary expertise and know-how

Provides dashboards, insights, reports, and alerts including infestation, damage assessment, nutritional analysis and yield estimates
