Computerized warning system for Erwinia amylovora

A computerized warning system for the control of Erwinia amylovora (EPPO A2 organism) has been developed in France. It needs input of regional climatic data as well as weather forecasts. Additionally inputs on plant growth and development, as well as on observed fireblight activity of the area are necessary.
The system provides the user with a forecast of possible fireblight occurence and delivers a proposal on the use of certain control measures.
