What do we offer? We offer a field testing service to detect Red Palm Weevil larvae growing in coconut palm trees within the first 2-weeks of infestation. The testing service uses state of the art IoT solutions based on Cloud Coputing and Machine Learning developed at the Morph Lab of Dyson School of Design Engineering, Imperial College London in the UK, a World Top 10 University.
How will a coconut grower benefit from this solution? Growers lose about 10% of their yield per anum due to this insect. We enter into a service contract with growers to make periodic visits to the farm to test young trees that are most vulnerable. The service charge is around 1/3 of the increased yield due to reduced damage from RPW infestation.
