IPMG researcher Francisco Tovar recently attended the “3rd combined Australian and New Zealand Entomological Societies Conference” held at Lincon University in Christchurch, New Zealand. At the conference Francisco presented a poster outlining the IPMG’s work towards developing a collaborative plantation health monitoring system for the entire Western Australian plantation estate.

Some highlighted projects included:

  • development of standardised rapid surveillance methods
  • development of mobile-device software to easily record pests and diseases in the field
  • development of a web-based database of pest and disease records in Western Australia
