IPM Decisions platform update for the summer season
On the 27st March the platform will be updated, with even more Decision Support Systems (DSS) for Integrated Pest Management ( IPM). The platform will have 26 DSS integrated in the platform and a further 17 DSS accessible through a link to the providers webpage. Users are now also able to compare and adapt DSS to suit their needs.
The platform is a “one stop shop” for decision support in IPM, containing DSS for major pests, weeds and diseases in a variety of crops across Europe and is available in 12 European languages.
Implementing IPM practices to tackle pests, weeds and diseases can be a real challenge for farmers and advisors. The IPM Decisions platform, WWW.PLATFORM.IPMDECISIONS.NET has been developed to help monitor and manage pests, as part of a H2020 European project, collaborating with 27 partners from 12 European countries.
Dr Neil Paveley, the project coordinator, says ‘We’ve developed a simple ‘click and go’ platform so users can find and run DSS, to assess the risks of pests on their farm. The platform provides information to help users select DSS that are most suited to their needs. More DSS will be added during 2023’
To access the range of DSS available on the platform, and use the new comparison tool, register for free using the link HTTPS://WWW.PLATFORM.IPMDECISIONS.NET/LOGIN.
