A ‘one-stop shop’ for decision support in IPM

Learn more about this web-based tool for pest monitoring and more


The IPM Decision project has developed a platform for decision support Integrated Pest Management. This tool is easy to use for pest monitoring, it is available across the EU with a Decision Support System (DSS), data, tools and resources tailored to localised regions.

The platform offers farmers, advisors and researchers access to a wide range of weather systems and data from across Europe via a set of four dashboards.

Use DSS Dashboard
  1. provides an “at-a-glance” indication of the risk for pests and diseases across the whole farm using a traffic light colour scheme.

Farmers and advisors can select the crops’ pests and diseases of interest using a set of drop-down menus. The dashboard also includes the ability to set up email or text alerts for each of the pest and diseases.


Compare DSS Dashboard
  1. Having accurate and reliable information about pest and disease risk is essential when planning to integrate pest management strategies. This dashboard This dashboard allows farmers and advisors to compare the results from several different decision support systems for a given pest or disease so that they can choose the systems that are right for them.


Adapt DSS
  1. The platform allows access to decision support systems from across Europe. Many of these decision support systems will have been developed for specific countries. This dashboard allows researchers to modify the parameters within the decision support systems to adapt them for use across a wider range of countries. Researchers can compare the outputs before and after modification of the parameters. The dashboard also allows the researcher to download the results for comparison with field data for validation and verification purposes.


Develop DSS
  1. This dashboard allows users to develop novel DSS by combining different DSS or parts of DSS (models and tools).
