CRDC, University of Southern Queensland, Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries, and tech specialists Clevvi are creating a novel machine vision tool for use in the field. The Cotton Pest Detect App is a digital tool to assist with sampling for silverleaf whitefly (SLW) nymphs by providing image-derived insect counts using a phone camera. Pest Detect will count SLW nymphs and integrate this information with crop development and pest density thresholds to assist agronomists and growers to make better-informed management decisions. The app will also allow users to track where pests may be building more rapidly on individual farms or fields. It can also enable timely, impartial measurement of the efficacy of insecticides.
