Summary

Agrometeo is a platform offering information material and decision support tools for an optimized use of plant protection measures in conventional viticulture, orchards and arable cropping based on microclimatic data from over 150 weather stations in Switzerland generating forecast models of pest and disease risk. An interactive map enables to click on a specific weather station which gives the user the latest meteorological data, as well as prognosis of infection risks in viticulture and apple production.
Information material and control thresholds for cultivators of wheat (fusarium fungi), barley, potato (virus, late blight) and insect monitoring for European corn borer and pea moth is free for use. Control methods based on counting of infested main shots by eyespot, leaf diseases, septoria and DTR in arable crops, serve as monitoring device with updated regional data and alerts if control threshold are exceeded. Accordingly the farmers get informed if measures need to be taken.
Documentation (provided by Agridea) on control thresholds of pest for the main arable crops is attached with additional indication on control periods and methods, this helps farmers to self-assess the state of their own crops and a meaningful use of plant protection products.
Further forecast models evaluate the spread and development, and its treatment date for mildew, grapevine moth, apple scab and fire blight.
An insect-monitoring system is available for the European corn borer and pea moth throughout Switzerland based on data from observations on stubble, traps and flight curves.
