How to Use the BC DAS System
Interested in using the BC DAS System and not sure where to start? Start here with this informational set by step video, outlining how to navigate the BC DAS system. In this video Molly Thurston of Pearl Agriculture helps users find and add stations, models, and access tools like the online version of the BCTFPG (BC Tree Fruit Production Guide) and the Northwest Horticultural Council which provides up to date information for MRL (Maximum Residue Levels) currently allowed in the export market.
In order to get the most out of the DAS system, growers are encouraged to monitor orchard conditions in their own blocks while following along with the models to improve the effectiveness of DAS system's predictions for your orchard location. Still wanting more information? Check out the series of field-based Horticultural Short films, or "hort shorts", aimed at assisting growers with spray timings, orchard disease and pest management, and horticultural knowledge to be used in conjunction with the online DAS system.
