Disease pressure

The development of fungal diseases in crops is often a combination of temperature and leaf wetness period or relative humidity. Many fungi, such as Phythophthora infestans in potatoes, need free water to germinate and penetrate the leaf. Others, like many mildew species, have enough relative humidity to develop. This disease pressure API brings all these links together and gives the expected disease pressure of the various fungal diseases in more than 40 crops for the next 5 days. When using our SmartFarm sensors, the current and historical disease pressure is available on the basis of the measured data.

Output is given in: json, xml or csv.
