The Adversity Monitors are generated from the left panel of the auravant mobile app. Once the season is selected, the farm and the field will be created by pressing the button ¨New Monitor¨ in the lower section of the screen. From this moment on, a Monitor in pending status will be generated.
When you enter the Monitoring, you can add Stations that will be the points where the samples will be registered with their respective adversities. During this practice it is possible to generate as many stations as associated samples are needed.
When selecting “New Monitoring” from the bottom menu, you should choose the existing crop, its phenological stage, and the overall state of the plot.
When creating the station, you need to select the adversity you want to assess. The available options include weeds, pests, diseases, and an additional category for beneficial insects. It is important to note that each adversity has a survey methodology associated with the type of crop and species in question.
Once the task of recording stations and samples is completed, proceed to close the monitoring. At this stage, additional data related to the crop’s condition, general distribution of pests and weeds, among other factors, will be entered.
Finally, select the overall assessment of the field: Okay, Attention, or Alert. It is crucial to emphasize that this last step is of vital importance in agronomy, as it will determine the final decision when implementing preventive/curative measures.
If a monitoring is in an Attention or Alert state, you can schedule a new field visit to repeat the monitoring. To do this, define the date for the survey. On the survey day, you can record the data for your new monitoring, taking into account the data from the previously recorded samples.
