iMETOS and www.FieldClimate.com The easy access to climate data and plant diseases modeling
iMETOS is climate monitoring with internet connection.
Build in GPRS modem with TCP/IP stack connects to the internet
No data download through telephone or radio needed
Data access possible from every PC or handheld with internet connection
Valid GSM contract with GPRS needed
GPRS coverage needed
Monthly upload costs
Temperature + relative humidity

BENEFITS OF WEATHER STATIONS
Local weather conditions have a significant impact on many phases of the farming operation:
Pesticide costs can be reduced with proper management of insects and diseases.
Irrigation management to reduce costs and reserve water sources.
Planting new varieties can be maximized when having on-farm knowledge of a variety’s ability to yield in a particular location (chilling degrees, windy area, frost…)
Global changes in weather patterns make it imperative to have localized information for use in planning crop production strategies.
Disease Models for Wheat Overview Puccinia tritic i infections are taking place after for hours of leaf wetness at optimum temperature conditions. The fungus can infect over a wide range of temperatures. The model assumes that infection needs 90°C*hours of leaf wetness in a range from 5°C to 30°C. Puccinia gramminis prefers a little higher temperatures and the infection has to be followed by sunlight. Whereas Puccinia stritiformis is the wheat rust of cool climates having its optimum temperature already from 15°C on.
Leaf wetness for 90°C*h (if T <= 22.5°C then ∑(T h ) else ∑ (22.5-(T h -22.5))
5°C < Temp. < 30°C
Leaf wetness for 80°C*h (if T <= 15°C then ∑(T h ) else ∑ (15-(T h -15))
5°C < Temp. < 20°C
No infections in times with low light intentions
Leaf wetness for 80°C*h following by a light period (150 W/m²) for 30°C*h (if T <= 24°C then ∑(T h ) else ∑ (24-(T h -24))
10°C < Temp. < 35°C

This shows the progress of an apple scab infection
Rust Infection Progress Curves calculated with weather data from station 10FE In the infection at April 3rd has started after a day with intense light. Whereas the infection of P.tritici and P.gramminis at April 4th as during a relative dark period. By this reason no infection was calculated for P.stritiformis
Possilbe Rust Infections on station 1100 during the last days.
Rust Situation over the last 2 Weeks for Station 11FE in Syria. The model expect 3 P.stritiformis infections within the last two weeks.
