Date of creation:




Accuracy of map:

Map was created based on materials of maps of natural scale 1:40,000,000


"Alber.s Equal Area Conic" 9, 1001, 7, 100, 0, 44, 68, 0, 0

Basic contents:

Vector map consists of 3 layers demonstrating zones of disease distribution on wheat.

Accuracy of classifier:

Within the limits of NIS and Baltic countries the distribution of disease is represented by 3 zones. All regions are mapped where Fusarium root rot was revealed according to scientific publications.

Method of map production:

The blank map with marked areas and zones of Fusarium root rot distribution was scanned. Registration and vectorization of raster map was carried out using standard GIS-technologies. The accurate definition of distribution of the disease was specified based on limits of the largest wheat production area.

Map demonstrates a high, moderate, and low degree of disease development. Harmfulness of Fusarium root rot, according to V.F. Peresipkin (1981), varies from 5- 30% depending on control measures (chemical treatment of seeds and usage of resistant varieties).
