An update of the IPM Decisions platform development


Open Access Government publication

Coordinators of IPMWORKS, Nicolas Munier-Jolain, and IPM Decisions, Neil Paveley, illustrate how integrated pest management acts as a pathway for European farmers to reduce pesticide inputs and improve production systems. https://www.openaccessgovernment.org/integrated-pest-management/112485/

DSS test

DSS Tested for validity

We assessed whether disease/yield data from trials for other purposes can be used, and conclude that such data has considerable limitations.

IPM Works

Survey IPMWorks

EU project IPMWorks develops an online toolbox for integrated crop protection for farmers, advisors and researchers across Europe. To help us design an efficient but comprehensive toolbox, we invite you to complete a short, anonymous survey. The survey consists of 10 questions and takes only a few minutes. Your input is highly appreciated!

IPM Works


IPMWORKS is an H 2020 European project that started on the 1 st of October and will last 4 years. The overall objective of IPMWORKS is to build an EU wide network of farmers to demonstrate and promote the adoption of IPM strategies, through knowledge exchange and peer to peer learning.


Creating a roadmap to find and recognize data for use in DSSs

Data for use in decision support systems (DSSs) need to be easily found in the portal. A first version of APIs providing data on model metadata and weather data are ready for testing in the portal.


IPM Decisions newsletter

The IPM Decisions team is pleased to present you the first newsletter on the progress of the IPM Decisions project.


User stories confirm we’re on the right track

Over 161 farmers and advisers from Finland, Greece, Italy, Sweden, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom have provided their feedback on what functionality they would like to see within the IPM Decisions dashboards. The key messages are that the information must be meaningful to the individual, providing a simple, easily understood message that allows a decision to be made.


Risk models can help to reduce the use of fungicides against septoria

Risk models for septoria tritici blotch in wheat can help to support farmer's decisions about when fungicides are needed. In a collaboration with different Nordic and Baltic partners two risk models have been tested for their validity.


Stakeholder’s behaviour regarding the use of Decision Support Systems

In the framework of the IPM Decisions project, workshops were held across the 12 participating countries across Europe between December 2019 and February 2020. A total of N=380 survey responses were collected from 16 workshops across 12 countries in Europe. Here, we summarize some of the most interesting messages we have so far extracted from the survey responses.
