Getting Started with »OliFLY- Olive Flies Remote Monitoring System« project

18 June 2015.

In the next six months, the Harpha Sea team will visit olive groves even more frequently than usual.

The kick-off of the new project, »OliFLY- Olive Flies Remote Monitoring System« funded by the Fractals' project (Future Internet Enabled Agricultural Applications), was on June 1st 2015.

The OliFLY system for automatic monitoring of the olive flies’ infestation will use smart application for android and iOS, and will save olive growers’ time and money.

Olive fly is the single most important pest damaging up to 100 % of table olive production and severely reducing the quality and yield of olive oil. By using our smart application, accompanied by the real-time imaging of pest traps in the orchard, olive growers will be able to monitor the changes of olive fly population from their homes and offices. This will enable them to react on time to save their crop and product quality as well as reduce the cost of pesticides and labour. Not to mention the improved environmental safety, health and agricultural sustainability.

You are welcome to follow the development of our product and our field tests on our Facebook page.
