This wheat disease app is designed for use by arable farmers and agronomists in England and gives information about the status and development of four key wheat foliar diseases. It complements the CropMonitor website by giving you up to date information on the disease status and risk of development at the CropMonitor trial monitoring sites across England. It also gives you a quick risk assessment of these diseases within your own area using the trial site data closest to you and predicting the diseases development based on the next 72hrs weather forecast for your area.
Disease Risk Forecast
Select any region or “local to me” and the app will show you the current status and risk for the four diseases, updated daily.
Submit a disease sighting
Use the app to submit your own sightings of disease to add to the database.
Disease risk at monitoring sites
View the current and predicted risk at any of the 13 trial sites. The app will show you the current status and development risk of the four foliar diseases on a range of varieties at each site. The data are updated weekly.
Reference photos of the main diseases of winter wheat to help in identification.
This app is a joint venture between the Food and Environment Research Agency (Fera) and Farming Online in partnership with Defra, the HGCA and Bayer Cropscience.
