Forecasting Potato/Tomato Late Blight Risk for YOUR Farm

February 29, 2016

Forecasting Potato/Tomato Late Blight Risk for YOUR Farm

Learn how to use the late blight forecast tool on your farm. Participants will set up their personal farm accounts on the Late Blight Decision Support System (DSS) website, defining the location of their farm/fields, and their varieties. Users can sign up for email/text alerts regarding when fungicide sprays are needed. Once basic farm/crop information is in a user's account, they can access DSS reports and input fungicide sprays by smartphone or tablet.

A laptop computer capable of wireless internet access is needed for the workshop. If you need to borrow a laptop or have questions about the workshop or the LB Decision Support System contact Carol MacNeil.
