The project provides the basis for the sustainable control of diseases in potatoes, cereals and maize. This is predicated upon a detailed knowledge of the biology of the pathogens, obtained through laboratory, climate-chamber and field trials. Based on the findings, we develop preventive and bio-compatible strategies that enable producers to produce high-quality, safe foods.
The ‘DigiPhyto’ project aims to provide producers with a set of pertinent information enabling sustainable and effective pest control. The information supplied stems from different risk-forecasting models based on a network of meteorological-data measurement stations, as well as from various monitoring studies to determine the presence of diseases and pests.
