Forecasting models and VIPS/LMT as technology platforms
We operate the national DSS for farmers and the extension service. To develop and implement IPM and climate-smart agriculture we need flexible technology platforms that facilitate collaboration and dissemination of pest forecasting across crops, target species and sources of climate data.
Pesticides in the environment
Since pesticides may be harmful to humans, animals, and the environment, it is important to understand the fate of pesticides after application. We study degradation, sorption and transport of pesticides and their degradation products in soil and water.
Chemical Ecology and Integrated Pest Management
The research field of chemical ecology is the study of chemical interactions between living organisms. Chemical ecology hosts a range of opportunities for sustainable pest control in both organic and integrated agro-eco systems.
