Webinar: Growing degree hours & IPM applications with Fargro’s Ant Surrage

May 13, 2020

One of the calculations that we often encounter is the number of degree hours (days more often in arable environments) or cold hours. While examining this in more detail and gathering information about the different models and conventions, we realized how general and useful this calculation is for almost every crop. With this you can not only follow the development cycle of your crops, but also the life cycle of different pests. In this webinar we explain how to set up the Growing Degree Hours / Days (GDH / GDD) widget within our platform.

After that Ant Surrage, technical development specialist at agricultural supplier Fargro in the UK, takes you into his world of Integrated Pest Management. Using various examples and accompanying dashboards, he shows his best practices.

Fargro Ltd. was established in 1946 as a grower co-operative to market fruit and supply growers with the necessary fertilisers, chemicals and compost to grow their plants.  Now a private limited company owned by 300 growers Fargro has developed in to the leading requisite supplier to horticultural growers in southern England.  In addition Fargro market a range of exclusive products throughout the UK.
