If you have the resources to provide Red Palm Weevil detection services in a local area with our portable solution, please register to start a discussion.
How it works:
(1) You will employ people to do routine checks in subscribing farms. We will provide you the required number of portable detectors and a protocol to test each tree to ensure a standard quality of service.
(2) You sign service agreements with coconut or palm growers in a given area to do periodic tests. To give you an idea, a hectare of a coconut farm has about 64 trees and 18 baby trees. Red Palm Weevil (RPW) attack these baby trees. If the infestation can be detected within the first 2-weeks, a chemical treatment can be effective. Therefore, we recommend testing each baby tree every 2-weeks.
(3) We will provide you the latest technology from our continuous R&D and you will agree to share with us all RPW soundtracks with their GPS locations recorded by our mobile app to support the on-going R&D.
