Disease management

Disease management is focused on efficient use of plant protection products. In the cultivation of a crop the goal is to realize of becoming a high production but not to use more chemistry than necessary. Crop protection with a management system is therefore a form of sustainable agriculture.

Disease management requires a lot of information and measurements. The system uses high-quality weather stations in combination with models that calculate whether and when circumstances for infecting a crop by fungal diseases are beneficial.

RMA collects all this information and translates that into a concrete advice for a spraying, so that plant protection products be used only when necessary.
