Making sprayings easier and more effective

The mission of FruitFlyNet project is to contribute to the development and implementation of environmentally effective e-monitoring and ground spraying control solutions, based on prototypes, technological innovations, and knowledge transfer for specific key-pests in the Mediterranean. 

Specifically it will develop, implement, test and demonstrate an innovative, integrated, Location Aware System (LAS) for fruit fly ground spraying control, by means of 4 pilots (and 1 test site) in 5 Med-countries aimed at developing prototypes, technological innovations and knowledge transfer. LAS is based on Real Time Trapping and Insect Counting (ReTIC) that can rationalize the use of insecticides: more accurate info in less time will be available to the farmers in order to decide how to intervene just only on the identified attacked areas of the tree. This will contribute to reduce the polluting risk factors for the environment and increase the quality and quantity of available fruit to local consumers at lower prices.

1st e-traps in the world for cherry fly

The first e-traps in the world for the cherry fly have been deployed. Specifically, in March 2015, in Agia, Greece, which is among the most important cherry and apple growing areas of Greece, the first e-traps (developed in the framework of the project) were placed in three large commercial orchards...More
