Insect Control - Agricultural Data

0

The Dacom insect control module provides advice regarding the insect’s current development stage. This allows the correct moment and the correct type of insecticide to be determined. Optimum insect control results in a better crop yield.

An insect is able to develop when the temperature is above a certain level. The further the temperature lies above this level, the faster the insect develops. This level differs per insect. Above a certain temperature the development does not take place anymore. The insects’ need for warmth is expressed in Day Degree Units (DDU). These are being calculated per 24 hours. If the temperature lies one degree above the bottom threshold during 24 hours, then the insect has gained one DDU. The insect needs a fixed number of DDU for every development stage. Thanks to that regularity it is possible to calculate when the insect goes from one stage to the next.  This allows the correct moment and the correct type of insecticide to be determined. Optimal insect control results in increased crop yields.
