Sencrop partnership enables bespoke disease forecasting

Written by Charlotte Cunningham from CPM Magazine

Sencrop has joined forces with the Information System for Integrated Plant production (ISIP) to provide bespoke disease forecasting for farmers based on pooled and individual data. Taking into account local temperature, humidity and precipitation, the system will predict risk levels for diseases affecting winter wheat, barley, rye, triticale and spring barley between 15 February and 30 June. This will enable farmers to react to times of high disease pressure and protect crop quality and yield. “Farmers can connect their individual crops to local weather data via their weather station and app, to receive crop-specific information and risk calculations,” says Lucie D’Haene, product manager and agronomist at Sencrop. Common diseases covered include septoria, yellow and brown rust, powdery mildew, leaf blotch, net blotch, ramularia and leaf rust. “This will support farmers in assessing the disease infection pressure and assist them in taking the right actions to maximise crop quality.” Ultra-local Manfred Röhrig, managing director of ISIP adds: “By integrating local weather data, the quality of the model statements is raised to a new level. No other data source can make it more precise.” Sencrop is now working with farmers, producer groups, agronomists and consultants in 26 countries worldwide to provide ultra-local real-time weather…

The survey will estimate the area of cereals and oilseed rape intended for harvest in 2022 in the UK. It aims to assess the varietal composition of wheat, barley, oats and oilseed rape crops in the UK. The results of this survey will allow the industry to quantify domestic production, at a time when food security is more important than ever.
The information can be used to shape the domestic market and trade and assist levy payers in their marketing decisions. It will detail regional differences of cropping across the UK, which will help...
