Fungal Disease Control - Agricultural Data
Due to the increased aggressiveness of fungi and climate change effects, keeping diseases under control remains a major challenge for all growers. That is why it is very important to use the right fungicide at the right time. The Dacom fungal disease module provides advice regarding the best moment to use fungicides and which type of fungicide to use.
The Dacom fungal disease control module provides advice regarding the best moment to use fungicides and which type of fungicide to use. The system determines whether present conditions are favourable to an outbreak of diseases – the so called critical periods. If this is the case, you will be alerted and can subsequently determine which actions need to be taken. Utilizing this solution results in a more efficient deployment of fungicides and ensures maximum crop yield and quality.
It will take into account the variety, cultivation purpose, crop observations, irrigations and most recent spraying of your crops. The type of crop protection used, dosage and timing of the application determines the crop protection still present. The combination of protection of the leaves and the measured and/ or predicted critical periods are the basis for the control advice of your crops.
Advisory models are available for all major fungal diseases like:
- Apple scab
