ENDOplant is a revolutionary injection system developed within the Palm project and funded by the European Union
for the vascular treatment of Palm trees. In its development, the system has aimed to achieve the right working pressures to prevent mechanical damage, good injection volumes to control pests and easy management.
The equipment has been designed to work in hostile conditions. It has been evaluated in different Mediterranean countries, The Middle East and Central America, proving its effectiveness for the control of the red palm weevil. The equipment has been designed for companies, professionals and farmers who perform large number of applications.
It respects the environment and is safe for the operator (the product goes from the machine to the palm tree) and injects the exact volume to control the pest.
