Within the framework of the workshops held by the Researchers Meeting in Acarology Group on Facebook, Prof. Rania Ahmed Abdel Wahab, Chief Research at Plant Protection Research Institute, Agricultural Research Center in Egypt, will introduce lecture via Zoom technology on Friday, 1 January 2021 at 7 pm Cairo time entitled (Management of Phytophagous Mites).
Mites management could be remoted even directly to cause mortality of their individuals or indirectly for biological control. Thus, smart technologies as the internet of things (IoT) with their protocols, digital systems, and artificial intelligence can play an important role to control mites and call their predators by light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and others. Moreover, advanced technologies are developed to detect and reduce the metabolic resistance of pesticides through specific tools. Therefore, the coming webinar will show all of mentioned points and explain the mode of action of innovative electronic devices that can be used against various mites.
