Forecast Models

The primary purpose of crop production on the DeMilia Research Farm is for plant pest model data collection and experimentation. No plant disease forecasting models will be tested on the DeMilia Research Farm during the next few growing seasons. We'll see how long it takes to get an initial release of DemiAg after that so that we can start testing some plant disease forecast models. The experimental field trials consist of an identical design. Several varieties have be chosen for each crop, including some organic varieties. Crops plantings are divided up into 5 randomized treatments replicated 4 times. In the future, one treatment will be an untreated control, one treatment will be an organic farming practice, one treatment will be a standard synthetic pesticide or pesticide combination, one treatment will follow a plant disease environmental based forecast model using an organic farming practice, and one treatment will follow a plant disease environmental based forecast model using a standard synthetic pesticide or pesticide combination. As plant disease forecast models are tested in field experiments, results will be summarized here.

Coming in the future. The first plant disease forecast model to be tested will be Botrytis Leaf Blight of Onion.
