Fundecitrus has five free digital tools developed to make pest and disease management more assertive and sustainable.

  • Fundecitrus Integrated Spraying System – SPIF: the tool provides information to citrus growers to calculate the volume of syrup and the dose of product in spraying to control the main citrus pests and diseases.
  • Floral Rot Forecast System – PFC: developed by Fundecitrus in partnership with Esalq/USP and the University of Florida, the system collects meteorological data in the orchards, classifies the risk of the disease occurring and sends alerts to the citrus grower, providing guidance on the timing correct for the protection of the orchard.
  • Phytosanitary Alert: assists citrus growers in the regional management of greening, organizing information on the psyllid population and the presence of sprouts on properties and monitored regions.
  • Greening External Control System – SICEG: system aimed at managing and monitoring external greening management actions.
  • Phytosanitary Management System: integrated with the Phytosanitary Alert, it assists citrus growers in organizing and managing data involving pest and disease control.

All of these tools are available to the citrus grower. To learn about the functionalities of each one and how to access them, see here
