Spensa is excited to announce the release of a new version of the Spensa Agronomic Platform! See what’s new in version 2.41:
Field Risk Report
The Field Risk Report lets you send out a branded report to growers or their advisors with predictions about which of their fields have the most likely conditions for insects and diseases they might want to scout for.
Let’s break this report down to see what’s inside:
With our smart trap network, you can place several of our Z-Trap and Sentinel automated traps as far as 25 miles apart and get an estimate of trap counts right down to the field level for Corn Earworm, European Corn Borer, Fall Armyworm, or Western Bean Cutworm. Spensa’s estimated counts let you achieve similar results to putting a trap in every field, at a fraction of the cost.
And don’t forget, our traps give you automated, daily resolution so you don’t have to wait until next week to see trap counts. For more detail, you can click on any estimated count in the report to see the nearby actual trap counts it came from:
Western Bean Cutworm Early Detection
Trap counts are useful for knowing where to look for Western Bean Cutworm, but what you really care about is whether there are egg masses present. With our WBC Insight, we were able to combine trap counts with agronomic models to go a step further: We can now help you prioritize your fields by those more at-risk of actual egg masses than just going by trap counts alone.
This information is available in the report form above as well as in Precision Dispatch, just like our corn foliar disease model released last year.
Corn Foliar Disease Risk
If you haven’t already seen our corn foliar disease model in Precision Dispatch, this is a great tool to prioritize your scouting by fields with the conditions most conducive to foliar disease. Much of corn foliar disease is found at R3 or later, too late to effectively control. Using our tool, you can go straight to the fields most vulnerable to corn foliar disease and stand a better chance at finding more of it in time for treatment.
The field risk report lets you receive this information right in your inbox, so you can get a heads up or share the early warning with other users outside of Precision Dispatch.
