Pest Control in Agriculture
Drone technology development has opened a window of opportunity has opened for the development of drone based breakthroughs in the field of agriculture in coping with various types of pests. Until today, pesticides have been applied disproportionately and manually by a large amount of manpower. ALTA offers drone based solutions that help make pesticides application more efficient, offer high level precision and optimize manpower utilization, which in turn lead to an enormous financial saving for the client and farmer.
False codling moth (FCM) is a quarantine pest that has migrated to Israel from South Africa in recent years.
This pest mainly feeds off citrus species, and even partiel infestation deems the entire orchard infested.
Luxembourg Industries Ltd offers a splat pheromone (a volatile substance that is released by a living thing in order to manipulate the social or sexual behavior of insects of the same sex), a unique substance for handling the false codling moth by confusing the male with the odor of the female.
Collaboration between Luxembourg and ALTA has given rise to a new and unprecedented service of applying the splat over agricultural fields through the use of a unique drone platform.
