OpenPD App

What's OpenPD?

Plant pest and disease identification is critical and normally a slow process. OpenPD is a mobile app that provides an on-the-field and on-the-fly system for fast identification of plant pests and diseases. It is easy to use, based on open community and peer learning, supported by european funded ICT frameworks and our development.

How does it work?

OpenPD Features

An image is the key

User takes or uploads a photo of the plant part affected by the pest or disease. Coloured, clean and good resolution photos work better in this context.

OpenPD Features

Ask for help

The user then describes the problem he's facing, based on the photos taken and his own observation of the local conditions. A good description drives the community to answer faster and objectively.

OpenPD Features

Receive feedback

The community provides help to the user in order to identify the pest or disease, inducing discussion, asking for more details or inviting other users to join in.
