WP3 analyses the benefits of the pest management solutions developed or adapted in WP1 and WP2 and their potential for being included in newly designed IPM packages.

Through a bottom-up approach, the analysis developed by farmers, advisers, businesses and other operational groups selected for their knowledge of the European and Chinese market is fed back to researchers in WP1 and WP2 to fine tune the proposed solutions. This knowledge exchange generates new insights and ideas while speeding knowledge towards practical and innovative solutions.

Only the most optimised methods developed through this iterative approach is combined into IPM packages to be tested in the field demonstrations activities (WP4).
