Decision Support System

The BlightPro decision support system (DSS) is an interactive system that helps users maximize the efficiency of their crop protection strategy by enabling well-informed decisions. This DSS is available at It includes current and forecast weather data, disease forecasts, a simulation model of the late blight disease, and a communication system. In field and computer simulation experiments, DSS-guided fungicide schedules were influenced by prevailing weather and host resistance and resulted in schedules that improved the efficiency of fungicide use and also reduced variance in disease suppression when compared to a weekly spray schedule.
