Focus of Working Group

Various models have been developed or are under development i.e. models  related to the appearance of pests and diseases, plant growth simulation, production estimates, …  Some of them never reach their full potential because of the lack of continuity in research projects. Members of this WG are open to discuss each others models, improve  and broaden  them and validate  them in various European climatological conditions.



Planned activities


Meeting: First WG Meeting planned for March-April 2015

Outputs: Joint research projects, broader validation throughout Europe, making knowledge  and decision support systems available to European fruit growers.
