Crop pest and disease warning
April 2014
Technology Strategy Board

The project was concerned with developing agri‐environmental services for developing countries by bringing together data on crop pests and diseases in the CABI Knowledge Bank with weather data and other environmental sources of information, including satellite data, freely available on the Internet. The resulting information was used to develop value added services which are used to help sustain the Knowledge Bank as an open‐access global public good. This helped created a virtuous cycle of more local information, leading to better information products, higher revenues and hence an ever expanding local networks across the world giving better advice.
