University of Wisconsin-Madison Awarded for ‘Sporecaster’ App

University of Wisconsin-Madison Extension Specialists received the American Society of Agronomy Extension Education Community Educational Award in the category of Digital Decision Aids (software, web-base, smart phone tablet apps) for their app, ‘Sporecaster.’

The Sporecaster app uses data collected from multi-state research on white mold occurrence, and integrates that information with weather data to evaluate the percent risk of white mold infection in soybeans, as well as the efficacy of fungicide use under specific conditions.

The group will receive their award during the organization’s Education and Extension Section Business Meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 7, at the Baltimore Conference Center.
