Our objective is to provide wheat producers a mobile-friendly interactive diagnostic key for determining the likely cause of plant stress and accessing useful management resources at the field level.
This module is part of an existing web-based application, called myFields.info (http://myfields.info), which functions as a decision support system, that relies on the digital delivery of science-based wheat management tools and Extension resources. The current limitation of our Diagnostic Key module is that it only encompasses arthropod pests and does not include disease pests and environmental conditions that can threaten wheat crops. To address this limitation, this module expands on the current information to include the identification of disease and environmental issues that currently resides in “Diagnosing Wheat Production Problems in Kansas” key. The comprehensive diagnostic key would then be named the Stress Diagnostic Key.
This module was funded and supported by the Kansas Crop Improvement Association.
