Much is known about the proliferation, invasion and formation of damage by pests and diseases. The Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (nVWA), Wageningen UR and CBS (Statistics Netherlands) also have organism-specific knowledge about this subject.
nVWA has many application-oriented knowledge about diseases and pests (resistance breeding, crop protection). Such phytosanitary knowledge is not always used optimally. It is necessary to find a way for these organisations to cooperate efficiently, especially concerning an early warning system. The goal of this project to create an overview of the current knowledge about pests and diseases and to explore the possibilities for joint plan for an improved early warning system.
