Recently, meteorological conditions monitoring, early warning and evaluation technology of crop diseases and pest emergence project undertaken by Chinese Academy of Meteorological Sciences has been approved in Beijing. This project has targeted operational development and production prevention and control demands of meteorological disaster preparedness, set up climate background indicators and meteorological scale index system of diseases and pest emergence, as well as monitoring and early warning, forecast and prediction, and impact assessment technical system.

According to the project leader, this project is based on multi-source information like agricultural conditions, disaster conditions, ground meteorology, atmospheric circulation,and sea temperature, combined field observation experiments and field trips in the farmlands, filtered out key factors and key time span that impact diseases and pest emergence of different temporal and spatial scales, and studied monitoring and early warning, forecast and prediction, and impact assessment technical approach, and indicators and model.

Based on this project, Guangdong, Hebei, and Henan has set up major crop diseases and pest meteorological service provincial platform system. Its results have been applied in 5 provincial agricultural and meteorological operation. (Feb. 5)
