CropMonitorTM gives you the up-to-date information you need to make well-informed crop-treatment decisions. To identify risks to your crops, you need to understand the current geographic distribution of pathogens and pests, and to understand how they spread. Fera is in a unique position to collate and interpret this data, which we collect from a network of live monitoring sites across the UK. All the latest data is disseminated online via CropMonitorTM, giving you access to a range of risk tools, alerts and reports on any internet-connected device.
This essential data empowers you to make accurate decisions about when and where to use crop treatments, avoiding overuse and ensuring the treatment is appropriate to the current risk levels.
CropMonitorTM has recently been expanded to deliver enhanced pest and disease information and services to growers. You can choose from a tiered subscription service according to the breadth of forecasts you require.
The enhanced capabilities include:
Extended network of 30 sites to monitor untreated varieties of wheat, oilseed rape and barley.
Sampling of 300 commercially managed wheat and 100 oilseed rape crops to monitor fungicide and insecticide resistance.
A met station plus insect and spore traps at each site to gather data for new risk-forecasting models.
Monitoring of pests and diseases in potato crops.
Automated spore traps for pathogen detection.
Weather data and forecasting provided by the Met Office.
