Following April’s ENDURE Network of Advisers workshop in Paris, France, VfL, the Danish Agricultural Knowledge Centre, has created an online forum to enable farm advisers to share knowledge, results and experiences to tackle pest control challenges and improve their Integrated Pest Management practices.
Currently, 36 participants from 15 European countries plus representatives of the European Commission are registered and the topics under discussion include alternative control of powdery mildew on pepper, apple and strawberry, the Danish experience with reduced herbicide dosages, and IPM-related apps for iPhone and Android-based mobile phones.
The forum can be found on the Yammer platform. To join the forum, email Jens Erik Jensen at VfL. Membership of the ENDURE Network of Advisers is open to all farm advisers who are involved in the use of IPM. To join, follow this link.
