The primary purpose of crop production on the DeMilia Research Farm is for plant pest model data collection and experimentation. DemiAg Expert System for Agricultural Pest Management is a web based computer system being developed to provide agricultural researchers, farmers, and home gardeners with forecasts for plant diseases and eventually other plant pests. By posting results online as they are conducted, I guess you can say we are doing "Real Time Plant Pathology". The publication process with peer review certainly has it's merits. However, in an age when newspaper reporters are getting half their stories from Tweets, it might be time to re-evaluate and try out faster ways of communicating real scientific experimental results. The experimental field trials consist of an identical design. Several varieties have be chosen for each crop, including some organic varieties. Crops plantings are divided up into 5 randomized treatments replicated 4 times. In the future, one treatment will be an untreated control, one treatment will be an organic farming practice, one treatment will be a standard synthetic pesticide or pesticide combination, one treatment will follow a plant disease environmental based forecast model using an organic farming practice, and one treatment will follow a plant disease environmental based forecast model using a standard synthetic pesticide or pesticide combination.

Coming soon. Further information about field trials.
