"Using the extensive evaluation enables the Blackspot Manager to predict disease on a farm or a catchment basis.".. To account for this, the South Australian Disease Risk model (DIRI) brings together management factors such as the number of years since a pea crop was grown in a specific paddock, variety, the use of seed dressings and rainfall data... "Our model not only allows growers to see the impact of adjusting sowing date on the level of blackspot disease risk, but also of paddock choice and the use or omission of a seed dressing."..
