Why use SwiftDetect

Your SwiftDetect results are an important tool to help with decision making. Here's what you can expect from using the test!


Gain an early warning

SwiftDetect is so sensitive, it will identify disease before visible signs emerge, so you can take action sooner.


Better targeting

Fungicide doses can be tailored according to disease levels rather than blanket sprayed. Also, spray timings can be based on disease levels rather than growth stage, improving effectiveness of treatment.


Save money and protect the environment!

If your results show your disease levels are lower than you expected, you'll have the confidence to use less fungicide. This has saved many of our customers money (and benefits the environment).


Track disease levels over time

You can repeat SwiftDetect as little or as often as you'd like. Some of our customers test throughout the season, so now have a deeper understanding of how their crop disease levels change over time.


Rapid turnaround

With a turnaround time of just 1 business day, SwiftDetect will provide you with insight into your disease levels, almost in real-time.


Hassle free
