Identify pest insects and weeds, get real-time forecasting of pests, with multiple farm management features. This app is intended for Canadian field crops and will aid users to implement Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices to agricultural operations.
Current identification tools include insect pests of canola and wheat and weedy grasses of Western Canada. Real-time forecasting is currently for Bertha Armyworm (Mamestra configurata). Farm management tools include tracking of all crop activities, including seeding, harvesting, irrigation, finances, and pest management applications.
This app was funded by Western Grains Research Foundation, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Growing Forward II, and the University of Manitoba.
