Grape Compass fungal disease forecasting application now available in Afrikaans

Grape Compass, which is a smartphone decision support application for viticulturalists and grape growers, is now available in Afrikaans. It makes reliable forecasts of fungal disease risks in vineyards, thereby enabling precisely timed and targeted spraying to control powdery mildew, downy mildew and botrytis. It is very easy to use, does not require a weather station and has minimal data inputs. The application was created as a result of rigorous scientific research with the objective to maximise the quantity of high-quality grapes at the lowest business and environmental cost, thereby supporting the farm’s long-term sustainability.
