Thank you very much for attending the first SARAI ESKWELA: A webinar series on smarter technologies, practices, and innovations for agriculture.
For the second webinar, we will introduce you to the Smarter Pest Identification Technology (SPIDTECH). Please register on or before August 3, 2020 at: https://bit.ly/2ndWebinarSeriesOnSARAiEskwela
SPIDTECH is an android application aiming to help its users in identifying, managing, reporting, and monitoring major insect pests and diseases of rice, corn, coffee, cacao, banana, and coconut in the Philippines. One feature of the application is the Insect Pest and Disease Identification that uses machine learning technology to identify pests and diseases of SARAI-focus crops using mobile phone cameras. It also has Insect Pest and Disease Library that acts as a virtual encyclopedia containing data on identification signs, life stages, management practices, and other pertinent information about a pest or disease.
More than being a system for monitoring, SPIDTECH is also an educational platform that aims to raise awareness and familiarization with the common pests and diseases in the Philippines.
