    Abstract

    Within the framework of Agrobiokon an internet application was developed allowing potato growers a simple evaluation of their potato late blight control strategy. The goal of developing this application was to confront the perception of growers regarding theprotection level of their crops with an independent calculation of this level. Calculations of the daily infection risk allow growers to retrospectively track periods of under- and over protection of their crops. This form of interactive knowledge transfer is hoped to trigger improvements in growers’ potato late blight control strategies with respect to spray timing and fungicide selection.This internet application is available in 2005 and 2006 after which period its use will beevaluated. Agrobiokon is a joint venture between the Dutch “Main Board for ArableProducts” (HPA), AVEBE and “The Northern Netherlands Assembly” (SNN).
