Plant Management Network provides information resource for practitioners

Five years ago, the Plant Management Network was set up as a source of credible, hands-on information for agricultural practitioners, researchers, and educators. According to Dick Stuckey, PMN advisory council chair: "By providing so many tools in a single website, PMN offers a first-stop Internet address for those agricultural practitioners seeking reliable information."

The PMN is a collaborative effort by non-profit organisations, universities and the private sector. Covering subjects like agronomy, crop science, entomology, forestry, horticulture, plant pathology, seed science, and weed science, PMN offers an extensive searchable database with thousands of web-based resource pages from the network's partners, as well as access to 4 peer-reviewed journals: Applied Turfgrass Science, Crop Management, Forage and Grazinglands, and Plant Health Progress. It also includes an image database; field trial reports; the Plant Science Database; and an online Education and Training Centre.

People interested in using or supporting this "comprehensive one-stop Internet resource for applied plant science information" can sign up as partners or subscribers.
