Who We Are
iPestbook is the simple to use app for Australian agronomists and farmers to quickly find the information they need about weed and disease control for all major broadacre crops. It currently covers Western Australia with content for South Australia, New South Wales, and Victoria available soon.
It’s the app that can pay for itself in just one use, suggesting different treatments, with similar efficacies, and potentially saving you thousands of dollars.
Each treatment is rated on a star scale, by efficacy. The recommendations in the app are based on years of original research by our team of experienced, independent, agronomists as well as our farm clients’ experience of what actually works, in the paddock. Each potential recommendation has a price per hectare.
As a busy agronomist or farmer, you can find the treatment you need in just a few seconds- and information is updated throughout the year, so you always have the latest information at your fingertips.
iPestbook has been developed from the Farmanco Pesticide Handbook (also known as the PestbookTM) - an annual publication from the Farmanco agronomy team. The Pestbook is based on over 30 years’ worth of innovative research data about weed and disease control for all major crops.
The PestbookTM is regarded as the best independent guide to weed, insect and disease control in Australia. Until recently it was an annual, printed, publication that you would often find on the dashboards of agronomists and farmers’ utes.
