CABI has launched the Plantwise knowledge bank

In July 2012, CABI launched the ‘Plantwise knowledge bank’. This database contains information on pests and diseases: factsheets, distribution maps, plant health news and diagnostic aids. Information is collected by CABI from various sources: scientific literature, various partners such as EPPO, and the plant clinics established by CABI in different countries. Plantwise is more particularly addressed to developing countries and its ultimate goal is to ‘improve food security and the lives of the rural poor by reducing crop losses’.
