In early November, Geoff Norton gave two seminars on Lucid based digital tools. The first seminar, at the Korean Animal and Plant Quarantine Agency (www.qia.go.kr), focussed on the increasing use of Lucid based tools in quarantine, including examples from the USA and Europe.
The second seminar – involving staff and post-graduate students at Chungbuk National University (www.cbnu.edu/eng/) – was more concerned with the general role that Lucid based tools are playing in more general agricultural support.
Given that taxonomic and crop diagnostic expertise has seen an almost universal decline in recent years, the seminar provided examples of how identification and crop diagnostic apps have been developed and used to provide systematic help and information to support quarantine and plant protection decisions.
