SIRATAC is a tactical pest management decision support system for on-farm use by cotton farmers. Output consists of pest populations expected to infest the crop each day over the next few days and whether the crop needs to be sprayed. Output also reports how many of the fruits currently on the crop will contribute to yield, how many more will be produced, what the yield and harvest date will be, and the yield loss that will be inflicted by pests currently infesting the crop if they are not controlled.
Brook and Hearn, 1990
