Based on pathogen biology and weather data, DSS support decision-making by the farmers and allow to determine the optimal timing of spray interventions, leading to better efficacy of the products.

Summary translation

Auf Grundlage von Erregerbiologie und der Wetterdaten unterstützen DSS die Landwirte bei der Entscheidungsfindung und ermöglichen die Bestimmung des optimalen Zeitpunkts für Spritzmaßnahmen, was zu einer besseren Wirksamkeit der Produkte führt.

EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:DSS for better decision-making and efficiency.
What problem does the tool address?:Fungal diseases can cause significant yield losses. Fungicides
used in organic farming generally have a contact mode of action. Such contact fungicides need to be applied shortly before an infection event in order to have the highest efficacy.
What solution does the tool offer?:Decision support systems (DSS) are tools to allow optimal timing of fungicide application. DSS have been developed for various crop-pathogen combinations, e.g., apple scab, grapevine downy mildew, among others.
