Information system to detect the presence of whitefly previously

International Journal of Advanced Operations Management (IJAOM), Vol. 6, No. 3, 2014

Abstract: The whitefly is a very difficult plague to combat. It operates in various types of culture and each year has led to major losses to farmers across the nation. To combat the whitefly, pesticides or agrochemicals increasingly powerful are being used. One consequence is the contamination of soils, rivers and also risks to consumer health, particularly crops of tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries, beans and many others. One way to combat the whitefly is to find ways to combat these pests when the attack is at the beginning. For this purpose, an information system will be built in order to detect the growth of this plague and also give conclusions about the behaviour of this plague in different environments and culture (rice, bean, cucumber, corn and so on). With the system identifying the growth of the plague and also how to spread, then it is possible to combat the plague before it spreads. Thus, fewer pesticides are inserted into the soil and indirectly into the rivers. Thus, it also allows the reduction of costs fighting this plague and also reduce production losses. This paper describes this information system and also the technology involved.
