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.
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.
