USE CASE

NATIONAL CITRUS PEST CONTROL: SDSS - ISRAEL

The Israeli Ministry of Agriculture has been successfully using AGRI INSIGHT for three years now to control and eliminate the Mediterranean Fruit Fly to citrus orchards throughout the country.

THE GOAL

Zero infestation to fruits intended for marketing, in order to increase profits for the farmers.

DETAILS

THE

PROBLEM

 

THE

SOLUTION

 
Data collection into centralized geo database.    Advanced SDSS is implemented.    System recommendations & user decisions are recorded for future Machine Learning & algorithm improvement.

DATA COLLECTION & MANAGEMENT

COMPREHENSIVE SOLUTION:
Field data collection.
Data from external sources.
Big Data usage e.g. weather.
Data management, analysis & decision making.
 

ALGORITHM - SDSS

Run a unique algorithm developed from a PhD thesis.

 

The algorithm improves from session to session by machine learning.

 

PEST CONTROL RECOMMENDATION

Spraying map is obtained within few seconds, with severity levels.

 

Plots regional distribution for effective spraying execution.
