ALL INHABITANTS OF YOUR FIELD UNDER FULL CONTROL – USING STATE OF THE ART OPTICAL CAMERA SYSTEM SUPPORTED WITH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE SOFTWARE

With the inspiration of helping the farmer to grow his crop in the optimal and most healthy way, Pessl Instruments GmbH, developed an optical high-resolution camera system, together with a computer vision software which is able to recognize insects from the photo. Optical high-resolution camera system is embedded inside insect trap, to remotely monitor insect pressure at fields. We provide different types of traps, to cover a broad spectrum of insect species. All of the photos and data from computer vision software is displayed online, on a web portal called FieldClimate.

REMOTE MONITORING OF INSECT PRESSURE SAVES TIME AND OPTIMIZES USE OF RESOURCES – PRODUCING MORE WITH LESS

iSCOUT® is an insect trap with integrated electronics (camera system, modem, power source with solar panel) and sticky plate. It can be hung wherever in the field needed, due to its low weight. In the field, the device is self-sufficient, as it is powered by a solar panel and a battery. 10 MP camera takes high-resolution pictures of the sticky plate within the iSCOUT® trap. Images are sent via LTE to the FieldClimate platform where they are analyzed with AI (artificial intelligence) software. The results are then visible on web or mobile devices. As a result, we see the photo with rectangles around the target insect, as well as summarized data of the daily count, targets in total and development of insect population during the season. Control is real-time and the collected data can be used for further analysis.

 

HOW MANY STATIONS TO INSTALL?

How many stations should be installed depends on the size of the field and the target insect. The distribution of insects within a field is often not homogenous – immigrated insects from overwintering sites are often more concentrated on borders whereas insects hatched from soil are clustered within fields, therefore we suggest using multiple traps in large field areas. If different pests are monitored on the same location, different variations of iSCOUT® can be installed. The iSCOUT® can be used to monitor the first occurrence of pest species on the field site and to implement IPM strategies when needed. It can help us decide when we should start with mass trapping too.

iSCOUT® TYPES

 

iSCOUT® Pheromone
Designed and developed to catch insects with insect specific pheromone lure (codling moth, european grape berry moth, tomato leafminer and many other species). It includes a metal plate on which sticky paper and a pheromone lure can be applied.
Helicoverpa armigera – cotton bollworm caught with the iSCOUT® Pheromone

 

 

iSCOUT® Fruit Fly
Designed and developed for catching fruit flies (spotted wing drosophila suzukii, olive fruit fly). Includes 3 mm nettings on entries, so that bigger flies (house flies) and other non targets are not able to enter the trap. Tank for feeding lure and metal plate with sticky paper are included. If you want to catch and monitor bigger flies, you can remove nettings from the entries.
Drosophila suzukii – spotted wing drosophila caught with use of iSCOUT® Fruit Fly

 

 

iSCOUT® Bug
Designed and developed for catching bugs (marmorated stink bug halyomorpha halys and other species). Includes bottom entry with landing platform – pyramid trap and closed side entries. Once the bug enters the trap, it can no longer exit and gets caught on a sticky paper. For cathcing h. halys aggregation pheromones are placed inside the trap.
Halyomorpha halys – brown marmorated stink bug caught with use of iSCOUT® Bug

 

 

iSCOUT® Color Trap
Designed and developed for monitoring insects, which get attracted by colored sticky traps. Catching various insects depending on the color of sticky plate used:
• blue: frankliniella occidentalis, thrips tabaci, …
• yellow: white flies, leafminers, sciarid flies, …
• white: apple sawfly, plum sawfly, plum fruit sawfly, raspberry beetle, …
Diabrotica virgifera – western corn rootworm caught with use of iSCOUT® Color Trap
