Abstract

Methods of spatial analysis including distribution fitting, variance-to-mean ratios, Morisita's index, doublet and runs analyses, Greig-Smith analysis and variography were used to investigate the spatial pattern of hop downy mildew. Use of these methods allowed examination of the spatial structure of hop downy mildew at three spatial scales: within hop hills, between nearby hop hills, and for hop hills more separated in space. The results obtained were in general agreement for methods of analysis which assessed spatial structure at the same spatial scale with the exception of Morisita's index of clumping which did not identify clumps of diseased hills of the same size as Greig-Smith analysis and semi-variograms.

COMPARISON OF HOP DOWNY MILDEW EPIDEMICS USING SPATIAL ANALYSIS

Methods of spatial analysis including distribution fitting, variance-to-mean ratios, Morisita's index, doublet and runs analyses, Greig-Smith analysis and variography were used to investigate the spatial pattern of hop downy mildew. Use of these methods allowed examination of the spatial structure of hop downy mildew at three spatial scales: within hop hills, between nearby hop hills, and for hop hills more separated in space. The results obtained were in general agreement for methods of analysis which assessed spatial structure at the same spatial scale with the exception of Morisita's index of clumping which did not identify clumps of diseased hills of the same size as Greig-Smith analysis and semi-variograms.
