JKI WATARA-MODE project
Commodity and taxon based risk analysis and modelling of quantified plant damage for dynamic cost-benefit analysis of plant health measures.
This project starting in (April 2022 - April 2025) will :
- conduct horizon scanning for pests that could be introduced into the EU with bamboo as a substitute for wood packing material
- scan the entire genus Agrilus to see whether other very dangerous species could be introduced into the EU in addition to the already known representatives
- create alert lists and mini datasheets for identified pests.
- model damage thresholds of new plant pests to allow a scientific evaluation of the proportionality of measures and regulatory interventions
