Abstract

Crop diseases and pests are one of the major concerns of Colombian farmers, since the affected crops could highly reduce their yields, negatively impacting the livelihood of their families. Though recent researches have focused on opportunely detecting possible infections, most of the alerts are deployed through ineffective legacy systems wasting the opportunities brought by these researches. Thus, we propose an ICT-based easily-scalable dissemination system for coffee-rust early warning systems, capable of deploying alerts through both telecommunications and Web 2.0 services, and seamlessly connecting to current rust-detection systems through a standard Web interface. This system will allow Colombian agriculture-oriented alert systems to increase their efficiency and effectiveness, reducing the impact of crops pests and diseases on the Colombian economy, mainly for smallholders.
