Initial data collection process for Red Palm Weevil Detection

Date palm trees face serious threats by RPW infestations across the world. The UN stated, "The weevil causes economic losses in the millions of dollars annually”, making it a major economic issue. This can be through lost production, increased pest control, eradication, and replacement costs. Current solutions are not cost-effective, target one tree at a time, and require human intervention.


Our initial data collection process for RPW was conducted in Al Awir, feeding the data into our B-THIR system.


The RPW solution will detect the RPW at an early stage using machine learning, which will lead to lower infestations and costs and higher crop yields.
