California PestCast: Disease Model Database-UC IPM

Information about Disease Model Database, California PestCast, on the University of California IPM Web site...


Their database is a clearinghouse of information about models developed for economically important crop and turf diseases in California. A model is included in the database if it uses weather, host, and/or pathogen data to predict risk of disease outbreak. The database is a part of a project called "PestCast," a regional weather network to support the development, validation, and implementation of crop disease models.

Statewide Integrated Pest Management Program staff members work closely with area IPM advisors, farm advisors, specialists, and researchers to develop educational programs that reflect the newest advances in pest management. The online courses are offered free of charge. Additional training materials, including videos, DVDs, books, and leaflets, are available in the Publications section. 

Insects, diseases, and invasive weeds threaten California's natural environments as well as homes, gardens, and agriculture. Warnings about exotic and invasive pests are included. Useful links to articles, fact sheets, and other information prepared by UC scientists on topics related to pests could be found on this page.
