Using AI and Acoustics to detect pests in agriculture
Palmear combines big data, artificial intelligence, and audio engineering to solve a major challenge affecting farmers globally through the early detection of pests.
Our platform enables an Integrated Pest Management approach in monitoring and controlling pest and disease on a farm and country levels.
A Global Problem
Nearly 50 million farmers livelihoods are affected by the Red Palm Weevil (RPW) pest. The RPW spend 80% of its life undetected, irreversibly destroying palm trees from the inside. 30% of palm trees in the world stand to be affected
Palmear has saved to date:
Palmear® is a real-time acoustic sensor and AI powered mobile app
Palmear is fundamentally changing the early detection of pests using AI and acoustics.
Our device together with powerful AI algorithms enable farmers to detect the early onset of pests in seconds.
We help growers assess and optimize their pest response mechanisms by enabling the treatment of the precise tree before serious damage is inflicted.
Integrated Pest Management
Our platform is a holistic management solution that tracks pest infestations at a farm and country levels, allowing farmers and various stake holders to make well informed data-driven decisions.
We analyze satellite imagery and train algorithms to provide palm tree health analytics to plantations around the world.
