The onset and cessation of surface wetness on maize ears were simulated with six models, using hourly meteorological data, to examine the linkage between wetness duration and possible forecasting of fungal infections that produce mycotoxins. Two threshold models (using relative humidity and dew point temperature), one regression model (using humidity and wind speed), and three physical models based on the energy balance approach, were compared. Also, spatial and temporal variability in wetness… CONTINUE READING
