This FAO Good Practice fact sheet aims to share the experience and technology behind eLocust3, a highly effective data recording and transmission system for crop pest monitoring. The document highlights the system’s innovative features and the lessons learned from the process of product development. It also sets out to explore how this technology, currently being used with considerable success as a detection and early warning tool for Desert Locusts, could be adapted and replicated to monitor other crops pests, both migratory and sedentary.
