The Blackleg Model
CropAlert from Bayer Crop Science helps growers and advisors manage fungal disease in canola. Understanding when risk of disease infection is high is important for a proactive disease control program in canola and CropAlert assists growers and advisors to do this.
The Sclerotinia Model
CropAlert for sclerotinia gives a disease incidence risk score for sclerotinia stem rot (sclerotinia) on an hourly basis and is also supported by a graph indicating the progression of the disease risk over the previous 3 days as well as a forecast of disease risk 48 hours in advance. The bar chart displayed when CropAlert is ran will give the user a breakdown of how many hours a certain location has spent in a period of "high disease risk".
