Résumé
This thesis introduces microwave treatment as an effective tool to help the control of the red palm weevil pest. We have then studied numerically the effect of electromagnetic power on an infested palm. First, we have designed a circular array horn antennas operating at 2.45 GHz. Then, a part of an infested palm of radius 25 cm and height 50 cm was irradiated with the designed array. Main parameters as the input power and the distance between the array and the palm were also studied. Finally, we have concluded on the efficiency of this proposed method.
