This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
MyIPM-SED provides Integrated Pest Management (IPM) information to conventional and organic fruit producers of the Southeastern United States. The welcome screen lets the user choose either strawberries or peaches. On the main page he may slide through pictures of diseases from left to right or right to left or pick a disease from the dropdown menu. Tapping ‘Summary/Gallery/More' opens the Summary page, which provides an overview and a short two to four minute audio from a regional expert. The GALLERY features up to six pictures of disease signs, disease symptoms, schematics, or photographs of management options. The user can zoom in on each picture by tapping and spreading with two fingers. In the MORE section, the user finds information about the disease and its causal organism (including Symptoms and Signs and Disease Cycle), Chemical Control information, Fungicide Resistance in the eastern U.S., and Non-Chemical Control information (including Biological Control Options, Cultural Control Options, and Resistant Varieties).
Back on the main page, underneath ‘Summary/Gallery/More are links to Active Ingredients and Trade Names for the featured disease. For example, on the page displaying Strawberry/Angular Leaf Spot, when tapping Active Ingredients the user can choose between Conventional (Acibenzolar-S-Methyl) and Organic (Bacillus amyloliquefaciens, various coppers, hydrogen dioxide, and neem oil) materials. Active ingredients are color-coded according to FRAC Code. Efficacy values from the regional spray guide as well as Field EIQ values from the Cornell IPM Program are also listed and can be obtained by sliding the right half of the table. FRAC Codes, Efficacy and Field EIQ values are sortable. When tapping an active ingredient in the left column, a new table appears listing the registered Trade Names that contain that active ingredient. Back on the main page, tapping Trade Names displays all available products for this specific disease for conventional and organic production separately. Also featured in the sliding table are the Active Ingredient, Rate/Acre, PHI, REI, and Field EIQ values. Again, all components in the sliding table are sortable. In order to quickly display Active Ingredients and Trade Names for a specific disease, the user can choose a different disease from the dropdown menu on the top right. For example, starting from strawberry/Angular Leaf Spot/Active Ingredient, the user can select on the drop down menu the next disease (Anthracnose Crown Rot). Different Active Ingredients are displayed that are registered for Anthracnose Crown Rot management (displayed in active ingredient column are: azoxystrobin in green, boscalid;pyraclostrobin in red and green, captan in black, and more). Note: For some diseases (Charcoal Rot or Verticillium Wilt) no active ingredients are registered and only the empty table is displayed.
Back on the main page, under General/Fungicide Resistance are three choices: FAQs, Guidelines for collecting and mailing your samples, and Situation in the Eastern U.S. Under FAQ are questions and corresponding answers; ‘Guidelines for collecting…’ lists text and pictures; and ‘Situation in the …’ lists one paragraph of text.
Back on the main page, About MyIPM features more information about who made the app, the sources for Active Ingredient and Trade Name tables and links to the sources.
Back on the main page, the Feedback button allows users to contact the main author of the app. Upon tapping this link, an email message in the outbox is prepared.
