Development of epidemics in crop mixtures

interactive softwarePlanting mixtures of crop varieties, each resistant to different strains of a pathogen, offers the potential in the short term to reduce disease severity and reliance on chemical interventions and in the long term to increase the life span of resistant varieties. We have developed interactive software that allows our collaborators to define initial pathogen populations and spatial arrangements of crop varieties. The code then simulates the resultant infection dynamics, allowing changes in the structure of the pathogen population over time to be visualised.
