Early Red Palm Weevil Detection with Palmnex

Palmnex solution is a system with unique monitoring technology detecting the infestations of plantations by the Red Palm Weevil (RPW) in a matter of days upon its arrival. React quickly, save your palms and secure your production with us.

The RPW is the biggest palm pest worldwide

Over the last decades, The RPW has spread at a speed never encountered before on similar pests, The FAO declared the eradication of the RPW threat one of its major priority over the next years.
Without a monitoring solution, any symptoms including major ones such as crown loss are usually detectable long after the palm has become infested. At this stage, the tree will die within weeks while most likely other trees of the plantation may have already be infested.
More than 50% of the palm trees are at high risk in some regions of the world. Authorities require the removal of the infested trees from the plantations and pesticide treatments. Palm tree exploitations suffer huge losses and cities streets are disfigured.

The Palmnex Monitoring Suite

During the last 5 years, Palmnex has developed an innovative patented technology detecting the RPW and alerting you from the first days of its arrival and infestation in the plantation, with a near 100% accuracy. You can then treat and save the infested trees early enough, prevent the pest from spreading and secure your plant capital and production.

The PalmsensorTM

Each tree of your plantation is equipped with a small well-designed sensor monitoring the vitals of your tree and detecting the RPW larvae from the first days of the infestation
High Precision
Our patented detection algorithm has been developed after years of research and development by an expert team, radio frequency engineers, programmers and biologists (phytologists). It accurately separates the RPW specific presence signature from any other environment dependent signals like wind, rain or other insects.
Damageless for the tree
The sensor stem is only 5cm long, it penetrates the bark of the tree but not the fiber of the trunk. It does not harm the tree.
24/7 self-powered sensor
Each sensor is equipped with a solar panel designed to be fixed on trees. A small battery charged by the sun provides the sensor for continuous operation 24/7.

The PalmAppTM

All the data from the installed PalmSensor array are geolocated and sent to a web based application dedicated to the management of your plantation
Each sensor is geolocated and the app gives you an eagle view of your plantation. You can monitor for each tree the presence of the pest but also variables like CO2 or temperature (to detect fire)
The app will automatically alert you thanks to the preconfigured alerts that you can then change and manage to your specifications
You can report in the app any treatment administered to the trees, analyze its efficiency, and retrieve historical datas from the past. Your plantation is effectively in your hands!
