Katlego Sitrus recently developed a scouting smartphone app to speed up response time to pests and diseases. Using the app, a scout can take a photograph of the pest or disease on the tree or plant, then upload the image to a database in real time for immediate identification. A relevant chemical treatment can then be selected and quickly applied where necessary. The app can also be used to track trends in disease outbreaks, and Stefan hopes to use this data to customise chemical interventions, instead of relying on blanket treatments…“Once the app is proven [to work] on our farm, we’ll try to commercialise it and get various citrus bodies and organisations involved,” he explains…

If you are interested in our scouting app, send an email to anne@katlego.co.za today.
