About the Crop Protection Compendium
The Crop Protection Compendium is an encyclopaedic resource that brings together a wide range of different types of science-based information on all aspects of crop protection. It comprises detailed datasheets on pests, diseases, weeds, host crops and natural enemies that have been sourced from experts, edited by an independent scientific organization, and enhanced with data from specialist organizations, images, maps, a bibliographic database and full text articles. New datasheets and datasets continue to be added, datasheets are reviewed and updated, and search and analysis tools are being built.
Pests: This Compendium covers pests of agricultural and horticultural crops and, since 2004, forest trees. The species that have been selected for inclusion as full datasheets are those of major global or regional economic or phytosanitary importance. In addition to crop weeds, invasive plants of rangelands and woody invasive plants are also included.
Natural Enemies: Some detailed datasheets and a large number of basic datasheets are available on the natural enemies of the pests covered by full datasheets.
Crops/Forest Trees: Detailed datasheets on more than 200 of the major world crops are included along with outline datasheets on over 100 important tree hosts.
