Since 2001, Syngenta Crop Protection provides a up-to-date and local spraying advice to growers for control of Phytophthora through the website www.alphi.nl.
A grower enters his zip code and some crop data, such as the date of the last spraying, the breed, approximate foliage growth and the probability of a latent infection of seed potatoes. Based on the Dacom Phytophthora and Alternaria control model advice will be given to protect the crop now or to postpone the application. Also the best type of product to use is advised: a preventive product, a curative or a systemic product.
With www.alphi.nl Syngenta contributes to reducing the environmental impact and reduction of the dependency on fungicides.
