Abstract

The topic of the workshop primarily concentrates on the pests and diseases found in agricultural crops, and is organised to cover the present status of computer-based advisory systems, pest and disease models and methods, integration of plant growth and plant protection models, and future development trends in plant protection in terms of new technology. Thirty papers are presented, from countries including Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Spain, the UK, Germany, Ireland, Finland, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Italy and France. The goal of computer-based plant protection systems is to provide optimal plant protection in terms of pesticide selection and dosage, with the intention of reducing the environmental impact of pesticides.
