Description

Improving the RIMpro software to better predict the risk of infection during rainfall.

Objective(s)

  • Determine how infection speed varies with temperature and to better understand the impact of drying periods on spore survival.
  • Update RIMpro, a free software application already used by producers, based on the results of the project.
  • Improve treatment decisions, with no additional complications or increases in risk, by better defining the period during which germination (stop) treatments are recommended.
