Summary

FusaProg and FusaProg Light are prognosis models in conventional wheat production to assess the risk of infection by fusarium and mycotoxins in Switzerland.
FusaProg Light is freely accessible and offers the farmer a quick risk assessment for day to day weather conditions. FusaProg is an extended version, only for registered users, with a tailor-made risk assessment and detailed prognosis evaluation for local conditions.
FusaProg offers downloadable data and maps on the infection risk and mycotoxin (DON) forecast for registered wheat crops in Switzerland related to weather conditions.
The optimization of the wheat cultivation systems and extension by the model helps to avoid the overuse of toxins in conventional farming. Organic farmers may use the prognosis model to decide whether intervention of organic agents are needed. Data on infection risk per variety is provided for the user.
