Improving microbiological products for sustainable crop management
Development of artificial food sources for mass production of predatory mites for bio pest control
Optimizing Baculovirus Production and Application for Cutworm Control
Attracting native soil beneficials to enhance crop yield
To develop a monitoring system for vegetable crop production that allows targeted pest control. The system works through a device which, by its software-based recognition system, automatically recognizes, monitors, and maps pest layout on crops.
The project will pilot a platform based on a geo fencing technology, big data collection and analysis. The platform will include two disease management tools. Throughout, industry will refine and customize the tools to best biosecurity, animal health surveillance, and disease control response needs.
