Protection through Detection
The Crop Watch Africa Difference
CROP WATCH AFRICA is a specialized Service Provider which focuses on supporting government and stakeholders across Africa in safeguarding their resources, by ensuring the early detection of invasive pests and diseases before they cause significant damage.
Efficient and timeous monitoring of pests and diseases is the first line of defense against damage. Our Detection efforts increase the likelihood that new harmful pest and diseases will be noticed successfully while occurrences are still localized, and infected sites are not beyond that which can be contained, and the pests eradicated.
In addition, the costs associated with eradication and control efforts are typically far more than those of long-term surveillance.
CROP WATCH AFRICA specializes in Early Detection, Delimiting, Area-wide surveillance and on-farm monitoring programs for invasive and native pests or diseases. We have developed systems to assist in the timely and accurate way scouting and reporting takes place thus providing real-time monitoring of pest populations and or disease outbreaks. Remote sensing is added as a valuable tool in evaluation, monitoring and management of land, water and crop resources on farm, national and regional level.
