The new EuroWheat website is an updated version of EuroWheat.org. The new logo indicate that this network and its website started in the frame of the ENDURE project. Wheat is still one of the most important crops in Europe, but many problems still remaining to be solved i.e. new aggressive strains of important pathogens emerge - we need early warning tools, there are now limited access to old and new fungicides and at the same time fungicide resistance against import compounds are found widespread in Europe - we need to monitor this situation and propose anti-resitance strategies. We have identified that still many data and information related to wheat IPM is scattered and fragmented. By collating and analysing this information - cross countries, cross institutions and cross public and private sector institutions and companies - we believe we can make a difference as a European knowledge hub, supporting the ongoing IPM implementation in EU. Putting attention on one major crop, can be used a showcase how to optimize IPM and sustainable crop production in Europe.
