Faculty of Agronomy in Zagreb has
been developing the internet-oriented system for fireblight monitoring
and forecasting, in the framework of the Agriculture Research
Council Project “Automatisation of apple fireblight forecasting
system”, and in co-operation with the Agricultural Extension Service.
The objective of the system is to achieve more rapid and comprehensive
reporting about outbreaks of this quarantine disease, to monitor
more numerous field locations, and to record systematically weather
characteristics and crop-development phases. Moreover, it will
be possible to add new forecasting models for other plant diseases
to this system, that use the same initial information.
