Review

PFD is a serious problem in most citrus production areas of the Americas. Because a predictive model previously developed in Florida to time fungicide applications was inadequate for use in many other regions, an expert system (PFD-FAD) with broader applicability was developed and implemented in a web-accessible Java Servlet. Cost savings with the use of PFD-FAD were assessed.
