The German federal extension services provide an online information system for Integrated Plant Protection. One of the main elements is the monitoring of plant diseases such as Potato late blight. The monitoring results are linked with comments of the actual situation made by the regional extension officer and they are linked with geographical and agriculture-related information of the monitoring sites and automatically prognosis models for special diseases. The monitoring is carried out by the regional extension officers and the data are placed directly without a time lag into the internet. Information can be used by farmers and other extension officers for an evaluation of the disease situation in their special region.
