Pest and disease control
The Openfields library contains resources about crop protection measures, plant disease identification, control methods, and field monitoring techniques. Measures that balance the economic production of crops with the needs of a sustainable environment are often described as Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Crop protection strategies can draw upon a range of practices for both agro-chemical and biological control of pests and diseases.
