about our research project

Realization of zero pest damage agriculture by fully utilizing advanced physical methods and unused biological functions


More than 40% of the produced crops are lost because of pests and weeds. Recovering these lost harvests to support the world’s growing population is of paramount importance.

In this project, we aim develop pest control systems that do not rely on chemical pesticides alone and are friendly to consumers, producers, and the environment alike, by integrating state-of-the-art technologies.
