Wheat disease management in Europe

Via the ENDURE website we had the opportunity to view the Eurowheat platform.

The EuroWheat website brings together information on disease management in wheat and Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices within a European context. It includes sections dedicated to fungicides, decision support, pathogens, cultivars and yields, and general information on disease management. At present there are 10 participating research institutions from six European countries.

A section of the website that we particularly like is the Decision Supports area that provides end users with information about support systems, their targets, and contact names. Very helpful to have this information available in one place rather than having to sift through thousands of Google hits. Another nice feature is the Public Documents section that provides users with national guidelines and case studies in wheat disease management. At present there are not many documents available but this is most certainly a section that will grow as more European countries and research institutes participate.

If you are interested in wheat, particularly in an European context, the Eurowheat website is worth a look.
