Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) has brought out an internet-based tool called CropPro to aid agronomists in handling cropping restraints.
“CropPro delivers diagnostic and economic tools for efficient identification and management of constraints to crop productivity,” said Victorian Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) Project Leader Chris Pittock.
“The three core functions of CropPro are to diagnose the cause of crop problems, support risk analysis and to provide evidence-based information for management of crop constraints.”
CropPro tool provides several components such as explanatory videos elaborating concepts toward dealing with future dangers regarding cost hazards and economic circumstances.
“Each constraint has an information page that provides short-form summary information and links to key resources on identification, cause and management of the constraint.” he added.
Queensland Country Life has enumerated several CropPro functions.
The “explore” function offers Crop Disease Manual and a bundle of review articles. It is extended with a search option to present recent, evidence-based credible data.
Through the “options” section, economic considerations and constraint management can be viewed.
On the other hand, there is a “do nothing” option available for any management actions tested by users.
