Project description

Aim:Provide crop farmers with disease and pest development forecasts, using a decision support system to determine the exact timing of spraying of plant protection products. The project uses the RIMpro decision support system for the forecasting of three widespread harmful organisms: apple scab, fruit tree canker and apple codling moth, and currently tests the pattern of RIMpro apple sawfly forecasts. A network of meteorological stations is maintained as part of the project, as well as free audience access to forecasts of harmful organisms.
