ADAS is leading an H2020 project to create an online platform making integrated pest management (IPM) decision support systems (DSS) more widely available and user friendly for farmers and advisors
The project will increase impact from IPM DSS by delivering DSS, data, tools and resources through the Platform and an IPM Decisions Network. The latter forming a community of users and stakeholders. The project is seeking the input from organic and other forward-thinking farmers, advisors and researchers as they develop the platform.
Dr Mark Ramsden, ADAS Crop Scientist said: “By engaging with farmers and advisors, we want to ensure that we create a platform that is easy to use and that the project does useful work and maximises practical impact. To do this ADAS and AHDB will be hosting a series of workshops (with lunch included) to get the views and opinions of farmers and advisors. We want to engage with people who are and are not interested in IPM DSS.”
