Geopotato

Approximately 750,000 small farmers in Bangladesh produce potatoes, accounting for the livelihoods of a significant population. Geopotato is a decision support system (DSS) for the control strategy of Late Blight, a potato disease causing annual yield losses of up to 57%. The platform computes weather data through Automated Weather Stations (AWS) installed at the potato plantations and determines whether environmental conditions are conducive to a potential attack. Potato farmers are provided with advice on preventive measures.
