AbstractThis project established a system to collate, store and interrogate pest and disease data that are collected annually by Queensland Cane Protection and Productivity Boards (CPPBs). An Access database titled ‘Bugbuster’ was developed and this served as the template which was modified to accommodate the needs of individual CPPBs.
AbstractA separate database containing historical pest and disease data from each CPPB since 1970 was developed. This will be updated annually. The information in this database is provided to industry researchers involved in monitoring trends in pests and disease.
AbstractA handbook was written to provide standard guidelines for collection of pest and disease data. This was distributed to all CPPBs and BSES pathology, entomology and extension staff.
