BlightCast

Sign up now for the new BlightCast to receive advance warning of Blight in your area via a five-day email report

With the Syngenta BlightCast agronomy tool, potato growers and agronomists will be better prepared to cope with more aggressive blight strains this season. It includes two prediction models: one for conventional Smith Periods and a forecast using the Hutton Criteria proposed to model strains of blight capable of developing at shorter periods of 90% relative humidity.

BlightCast uses local weather forecasts and sophisticated disease modelling algorithms to predict blight risk for up to five days ahead – enabling growers and agronomists to plan strategies more effectively.
