FuturCrop

Who is using FuturCrop?

Agribusinesses and farmers

Knowing the real pest risk allows optimizing most pest management processes. For example:

  • Facilitate pest monitoring and identification,
  • Make decisions on cultural measures or control treatments at the right time.
  • Plan treatments and reduce the use of pesticide products.
  • Plan the storage and transportation of biocides, biological control organisms, plant protection products, traps, etc.

Technical advisors

When several customers need to be served, forecasting the appearance of pests and changes in their biological development is important to prioritize actions according to risk (e.g. field visits).

Knowing the state of development of pests allows:

  • Anticipate pest behavior (dispersal, feeding, oviposition).
  • Anticipate the pest dispersal pattern. For example, insects with complete metamorphosis (eggs, larva, pupa, adult) have different habitats depending on the stage of development.
  • With FuturCrop, damage and treatments can be recorded, facilitating the evaluation of their efficiency.

Public institutions (City Councils, etc.)

The Plant Health or Parks and Gardens Departments of Public Agencies can

  • Control the risk of pests in forests, parks and gardens.
  • Supervise actions carried out by work teams or contracted maintenance companies.
  • Detect problems before the pest becomes established and control becomes difficult.
  • Classify the seriousness of the problem.
  • Precise the moment to release OCBs or chemical treatments.
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of control treatments.

Agricultural cooperatives

The assessment of the actual pest risk makes it possible to optimize resources and tasks. By means of the software it is possible to

  • Control the risk and population density of pests of several crops in distant fields.
  • FuturCrop facilitates and unifies the registration of captures and treatments.
  • In addition, the software facilitates the identification and monitoring by means of technical data sheets for each of the 179 pests.
