Sign up now for exclusive CropMonitor Pro updates

The CHAP team is busily preparing for the launch of its eagerly-anticipated comprehensive decision support tool CropMonitor Pro.

To keep you informed, we have created a dedicated CropMonitor Pro microsite for farmers, agronomists and any other interested parties to register for exclusive CropMonitor Pro pre-launch updates.

CropMonitor Pro (CMP), which has been developed by CHAP partner Fera, is an independently funded, one-stop-shop for precision pesticide application.

CropMonitor Pro aims to give growers a one-stop tool covering risk, weather and pest and disease management. The system uses local weather data split into a 2km x 2km grid  to provide disease risk forecasts for up to four days into the future. The rate of false negative alerts is below 5% in most foliar disease models.

Any decision support tool needs to earn its keep, and CMP is no different. Wheat producers have been shown to save an average of one fungicide spray per crop per season – generating combined savings/income of more than £6,000 (based on farm average of 56 ha wheat) from reduced fungicide costs and yield increases.

If this has whetted your appetite, go to www.cropmonitorpro.co.uk to sign up for more details.
