What is IPM?
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a holistic approach to pest control that involves scouting and monitoring plants for signs of pest infestations, identifying the pests, and taking action to control them in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way.
Why should I digitize my IPM?
The pen-and-paper approach to IPM quickly runs into scalability issues in commercial greenhouses. IPM Digitization reduces administrative costs, improves quality of data, and improves time-to-act once a pest has been identified. All of these benefits are available through OKO as it not only digitizes scouting but also automates many tasks throughout the greenhouse.
How does IPM work with OKO?
OKO is a powerful tool that helps greenhouse growers with their IPM efforts. By using OKO while scouting, the location information is automatically detected and the scout can spend 100% of their attention on pest and disease identification. The easy-to-use interface on the OKO also helps the scout to enter their observations into the system. OKO is also equipped with a guidebook that helps train the scouts on the go. The information from the scout, as well as environmental info, and a high-resolution picture, is uploaded to the cloud automatically, providing growers with real-time information and analytics.
What makes OKOs better than IPM app?
There can be several factors that make OKOs better than other IPM apps, depending on the specific features and capabilities of each app. However, some of the key
advantages that OKOs offer compared to other IPM apps include:
Improved efficiency for scouts
The automation of the monitoring process and the use of advanced technology reduces the time and effort required for IPM. This allows scouts to work up to 25% more efficiently and effectively.
Real-time data analytics for IPM Managers
While the scouts use the OKO, all collected data, including environmental information and images, are automatically uploaded to the cloud. An ecoation AI engine analyzes the trends and sends a notification to IPM managers and decision makers when needed.
Generating IPM forecast maps
Most scouts only visit 20-30% of the greenhouse every week. OKO uses an AI model to process the information gathered from the scouts, and the environmental conditions, to provide a real-time IPM forecast. This information can then be used by growers to make informed decisions about pest control, as well as prevent and manage outbreaks before they occur. For example, if the IPM forecast map indicates a high risk of pest outbreak in a specific area, the grower can take action to treat that area and prevent the outbreak from spreading. The ability to generate IPM forecast maps in real-time and identify potential pest outbreaks early is a key advantage of OKO over traditional scouting methods and apps in the market. It helps growers to stay ahead of the curve and make proactive decisions about their pest control, ultimately improving yields and maximizing profits.
Lower costs for IPM
By automating the monitoring process and reducing the risk of human error, OKOs can help to lower the costs associated with IPM. The data from growers using the system for more than one season indicates significant cost savings.
How much ROI can I expect from OKO IPM?
The OKO IPM module allows growers to quickly respond to pest outbreaks, reducing the negative impact on their crops and maximizing yields. With OKO, greenhouse scouts can become "super scouts" by being equipped with the latest technology and information. This enables them to work more efficiently and effectively to keep their plants healthy and productive. Large-scale commercial greenhouses that were previously using pen and paper typically see an ROI of 2.5x on their IPM efforts.
Who owns the Greenhouse Data collected by OKO?
You own all of the data collected and stored by OKO and ecoation from your Greenhouse. You have complete control and access to the collected data through our interface. We only store the data for the purposes that have been agreed upon as part of our Digitized Scouting, Integrated Pest Management and Yield Forecasting program.
How Golden Acre Farms reduced time-to-action and saved on IPM costs.
"The IPM platform provides real-time data that allowed me to make decisions within a day. This meant that we were able to treat within two or three days, rather than 7-10 days.
The ecoation platform is crucial in helping us see the data we needed to make informed decisions."
