The CropX farm management system tracks key fungal diseases on over 320 crop and fungal disease combinations and offers advice on when to spray.
CropX, developer of digital farm management systems, expands its system to include a crop disease management capability that can lead to reduced chemical use while protecting crop yields.
The crop disease management capability analyzes data from a full array of sources above and below ground to monitor and warn of conditions that lead to disease outbreaks. It then offers insights on the timing of fungicidal applications.
Users can see a forecast of specific fungal stressors and a visualization of the best and worst times of day in the coming week for crop protection applications.

By timing the application correctly, farmers can ensure that they protect their crops while limiting the use of chemicals to what is absolutely necessary. According to CropX customers can save 2-3 fungicide sprays per season or more, reaping significant savings while optimizing crop protection with a typical return on investment (ROI) of $ 30 per acre.
Disease management is the latest addition to CropX’s expanding portfolio of agronomic solutions. The CropX farm management system integrates both proprietary software and hardware on a single dashboard accessible via mobile and desktop. Through this, customers can track soil and crop health, manage their irrigation, fertilizer, and dairy effluent applications, and now protect against fungal diseases.
In use now by customers in Europe, soon disease management will be available to all of CropX’s customers in over 50 countries worldwide.
