The app is expected to help farmers know exactly which pests are causing diseases to their plants.

With this app, farmers only need to capture symptoms of the disease on their rice plants, then artificial intelligence will analyse the photos, compare them with the database and provide information on the pests.

This way, farmers can access scientific information instead of relying on their own experience or seeking advice from pesticide sellers.

After the experimental period, the two sides will make adjustments to the app so that its recognition will become more accurate. The app will be further enhanced to include other plants in the future.

The app among the digital transformation efforts in the area of plant protection, which will provide farmers with complete and accurate agricultural knowledge, thus helping them to quickly identify pests and apply the most effective solution for their fields.
