Smallholder farmers can lose up to 40% of their crops to pests and diseases. In Crop Management Simulator you help farmers face these challenges based on the principles of integrated pest management.
Crop Management Simulator has been released for Beta Testing. All levels are unlocked to allow you to explore. We recommend you complete the levels in order for your first playthrough.
As the farm advisor, you will need to develop a strategy to prevent pests and diseases from destroying a farmer's crops. A range of problems from insects and mites to fungi, bacteria and viruses will need to be defeated using your arsenal of control methods!
You have a range of cultural, physical, biological and chemicals control methods to combat these pests and diseases. All control methods have their strengths and weaknesses, and can interact with each other in helpful or harmful ways. Choose your control methods wisely, because you only have a limited budget at your disposal…
Behind the fun is an accurate simulation of the characteristics of hundreds of pests and diseases on many globally important crops. These pests and diseases will behave in the simulation as they do in reality. The range of host crops is realistic and the seasonal timing of pest attacks is modelled on real data. Changing weather patterns add to the challenge.
