CropMonitor extended and updated for 2018 season

The first phase of the new CropMonitor SMART Decision Support Service, part of the Crop Health and Protection Centre (CHAP) has gone live, providing access to live weather data for more than 100 locations across England and weekly updates on pest and disease levels in untreated varieties of oilseed rape.

Monitoring data for wheat, potatoes and barley will be available shortly.

 

Dr Judith Turner, senior plant pathologist at CHAP, says: “It is a small step forward in advance of what we will be releasing at the end of March. We thought the oilseed rape monitoring data would be useful to people at the moment.”

 

To see the data growers can click on a map at www.cropmonitor.co.uk, select the pest/disease they are interested in and then pick the weather station nearest to their location.
