Pacific Pests, Pathogens and Weeds

Pacific Pests, Pathogens and Weeds v10

When crop pests and diseases occur, farmers want help and advice immediately. They don't want to wait and in many cases they cannot wait. Unless they act quickly, the crop could be ruined.

This App gives extension staff and lead farmers all the information they need to treat the crop. If there is no way of saving a crop, the steps should help to prevent the problem occurring in the future.

What's new

In version 10, we have continued to prioritise weeds. Another 18 are added, all present in Pacific island countries except for one that is important, present nearby and has the potential for spread. In addition, we have added an assortment of fact sheets on a variety of pests - insects, mites, slugs, rusts, smuts, bacteria and phytoplasmas, again choosing some not present, but for which Pacific island countries have a vulnerability. We have even added fact sheets on ways to improve biocontrol and what is healthy soil. We always welcome suggestions for others!
