Takamori Town Office and Nogata City Office deploys Fujitsu’s Cloud-Enabled Solution for Wide Area Wild Animals Control to reduce crop damage by wild boars.

Customer

Takamori town is located at the foot of Mt. Minamiaso and Mt. Nekodake, and is famous for notable agricultural and tourism industries. It produces brand vegetables including daikon radish and cabbage and focuses on branding ‘Nangou-hinoki’, a high-quality Hinoki Cypress in the Aso region. Nogata city is located at the northern part of Fukuoka Prefecture. It is originally a city of commerce and industry, but also focuses on agriculture, food education and local produce for local consumption.

Challenge

Wild animals can cause damage to crops and agricultural land, which leads to financial losses. Now that the hunter population is aging, box traps have become more relied upon than ever. For agricultural communities, there is a need to reduce the workload of patrolling box traps and to efficiently reduce wild animal population.

Solution

Both Takamori Town Office and Nogata City Office implemented Fujitsu’s Cloud-Enabled System for Capturing Wild Animals to reduce damages to agricultural land by wild boars. This solution employs image recognition technologies to automatically judge whether the capture of wild boar is successful before notifying city clerks and local hunting associations.

Benefit

  • Workloads have been dramatically reduced by remote monitoring systems
  • Adult boar capture rate has risen from 45 percent to 65 percent
  • Financial losses have been reduced due to less damage to crops
