SwiftDetect is a rapid detection test, which can be used to detect crop disease such as Septoria in wheat from just a small sample of leaves.
Get actionable insight on the level of disease in your crop, guaranteed within 1 business day*.
SwiftDetect is super sensitive, so can detect wheat disease well before it becomes visible on the leaf. This allows you to take proactive action.
All you need to do is collect a sample and post it to us in an envelope; we will handle the rest.
Swift Detect allows you to match the fungicide and dose rate to the level of disease in your crop at T1 & T2.
Reduced environmental impact
By giving you clear insight on level of disease in your crop, you will be able to use fungicide more efficiently and effectively, helping the environment and reducing waste.
SwiftDetect not only helps you make savings by spending less on fungicide for the same yield, but being a single cost test, SwiftDetect is cost-effective in itself!
SwiftDetect allows you to see how disease is progressing in your crops over time giving a deeper level of insight. In addition, we can find the average level of disease in multiple leaves, providing you with a more representative result than if a single leaf was tested.
SwiftDetect is currently able to detect Septoria, and is under development to soon be able to also detect yellow rust, brown rust and mildew from just one sample.
How SwiftDetect works
1. Order your test
Order your test from our online store.
2. Collect your sample
Collect a sample of 10 leaves and post them to us. To ensure your leaf samples are as representative as possible, walk in a ‘W’ pattern across your field and collect 10 leaves for testing. Keep the leaves dry, using kitchen towel if possible.
3. Wait 1 business day*
Let us put SwiftDetect to work! Your results will be emailed to you.
* Results issued on day of receipt if sample received before 9am. Excludes weekends.
