fruitweb Forecast Models

Since 2008 fruitweb GmbH has been offering prognosis models for important diseases and pests in fruit growing. These are based on weather data, which are ideally measured directly in the orchard, and serve fruit growers as an important decision-making aid for upcoming control and plant protection measures. Below you will find an overview of the forecast models available from March 2020 with further explanations. The list will be continuously updated.
