The most important oil seed crop of the cool climate regions is affected by two very destructive diseases and three economic important pest insects. Rape seed growing has gained more and more importance in Northern Europe and in Northern America. Due to the growing market of biofuels it will gain more importance in South America and in parts of Asia too. New varieties have increased the yield potential dramatically. To keep these yields economically worthwhile plant protection strategies will gain more importance. FieldClimate.Com is supporting these strategies with disease and pest models for: Sklerotina sclerotina, Phoma lingam and Pollen Beetle (Meligethes aeneus).
