New features for this year include a larger weather station network to cover the South East, Hampshire, East Anglia and the West Midlands - as well as an updated codling moth flight model.
Agrovista fruit specialist Alex Radu told growers present at the company's annual series of fruit seminars held earlier this month in Ledbury and Harlow that the new model will be able to more accurately predict the arrival of the second generation of moths later in the season.
Weather data is also being presented in a new format that will allow growers to enter a new web portal that can link them up to weather stations. This tool will give them live information on - and the past year's history of - each site in a range. Growers can use this data to look at regional trends.
Radu said: "The data from more than one station can be compared with any others on the same screen, allowing for planning of spraying and product application across a large farm site."
