STRIKEWISE MODEL

The computer model, called 'Strikewise', uses recordings of daily temperatures and rainfall along with a detailed understanding of fly and sheep biology to forecast the patterns of fly and disease incidence. The model is highly accurate and tests have shown that it can predict patterns of disease in sheep flocks effectively. This model was developed by Insect Ecology & Veterinary Parasitology research group at the University of Bristol

Work contributing to the development of the model has been funded by DEFRA, NERC and The University of Bristol.
