DescriptionThe Plant Doctor provides interactive diagnosis for plant diseases in gardens, landscapes, nurseries and farms.
The app collects user-supplied information (text, photographs) about the problem and sends it to a professional plant pathologist with a Ph.D. and more than 20 years of experience in the science.
The user promptly receives live communications from the pathologist, including the probable name of the plant disease and causal pathogen, tactics for managing the disease, and contact information for local university experts who may be able to provide more information or examine samples in person.
Every year, plant diseases cause tremendous losses to plants and untold human suffering worldwide.
One must accurately and quickly identify the causes of disease in order to manage or control it properly.
Given the similarity of symptoms among diseases and the thousands of plant pathogens that can cause disease, expert diagnosis is needed in most cases to unravel the confusion and to provide clear direction.
Whether you are a home gardener or professional farmer, The Plant Doctor could save you the time and the money that you have invested in your plants.
