Description

A five-day workshop on agricultural pest and disease modeling was conducted to equip agricultural scientists with tools and techniques to create and accurately interpret pest and disease models, especially in the setting of climate variability. It is estimated that plant pests and diseases cause up to 40% crop loss worldwide. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has declared Year 2020 as International Year of Plant Health in order to spotlight the urgency of combating plant pests and diseases. With a changing climate, it is increasingly clear that we need modern, innovative tools to complement traditional methods of pest/disease control. Pest and disease modeling, a relatively new area, is becoming increasingly important.
