Today's agriculture has witnessed the entry of exotic pests at an alarming rate in recent years as a result of globalization and the free movement of people and goods worldwide.
The arrival of these invasive species represents a loss of approximately 30% of crops with significant economic damage.
For this reason, it is essential to adopt all possible measures to halt their advance and distribution throughout the territory and, if they have become established, to try to prevent the density of their populations from affecting crops.
PEST TRACKING AND GEOLOCATION TECHNIQUE
Open Geo is our recognized method of pest control and management using new artificial intelligence 4.0 technologies for a more efficient management of agricultural systems.
This methodology involves a periodic and systematic review of the crops by our technical team to measure the density and estimate the distribution of pests and/or diseases.
In this way, by observing its evolution, our team will be able to indicate to the farmer when it is the right time to take preventive action, avoiding reaching the level of economic damage.
