The IPM forecasting Module for Grapes provides the final step in linking your weather data to actual pest risk, giving you a powerful new tool in the battle against crop pest damage.
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) forecasting provides you with tools to protect your crops from pests such as diseases, insects, and mites. This module uses current weather conditions captured from a Davis station and calculates risk levels, which allows you to maintain healthy crops by applying pest control methods before disease spreads.
Track the development of diseases and insects that affect grapes View all the pest data with descriptions and images on one screen Easily identify risk levels of each pest in a color-coded chart View graphs of data and tables compiled from local weather data
This add-on module works with WeatherLink for Windows and Vantage Pro2 to gather real-time temperature, humidity, rain and leaf wetness data. It generates stepped risk levels to warn you when conditions are favorable for pest development. Software Features
Pest models for all known grape pests, including diseases, insects and mites (ability to delete pests not present in your area) See at a glance when conditions are favorable for insect pests reaching a damaging stage of growth, or for disease development to occur Color-coded spreadsheet puts the highest risk potential pests at the top of the list and highlights them in red Configure the software to reflect pests present in your area and use real-time data from your own vineyard weather sensors Updated pest development algorithms will provide you with the most accurate, vineyard-specific risk assessment available
