- ... Fungal disease infection risk in fruit trees strongly depends on the climatic conditions in the orchard and on the microclimate within the tree. The Leaf Wetness Duration (LWD), i.e. the time that free water remains on leaves in relation to rain or dew events is for many fungal species the significant parameter linking the epidemic risk to environment humidity. Our goal is to provide a reliable LW ...

- ... In temperate fruit trees, most key phenological stages are highly dependent on environmental conditions. In particular, correct timing for dormancy and flowering is essential to ensure good fruit production and quality. As a result, in a swiftly-changing environment, temperate fruit crop adaptation in many areas will be at risk in the coming decades. Global changes in environmental conditions incl ...
