Plant Health Bulletins (PHB)

Note that PHB is named Bulletins de Santé du Végétal (BSV) in french.

This projet belongs to the task archive of the french project untitled VESPA (Value and optimization of epidemiosurveillance devices in a sustainable crop protection strategy) leading by INRA.

One of the goals of the task archive was to build an open archive of Plant Health Bulletins (PHB). A PHB is an information document, both technical and regulatory in nature, written under the responsibility of a regional epidemiological surveillance committee. A PHB gathers information about the health status of crops. It first presents pest risk analysis, and it is also used to disseminate regulatory information (mandatory control order, national notes, regulation evolution, etc.) and non-regulatory information (description of pest biology or prophylactic methods, such as management of intercropping, tillage, choice of cultivars, etc.).

This archive contains some PHBs published after 2009.

Thesaurus FrenchCropUsage

To access PHB a french thesaurus has been developed called FrenchCropUsage. This is a thesaurus of types of crops, organized according to their destination (direct human food, animal feed, food industry, etc) and the type of culture system (field crop, market gardening, etc.). This thesaurus represents the French point of view. More information are available at Thesaurus FrenchCropUsage

New PHB annotations

The annotations of the PHB will be improved during the D2KAB project. We will describe precisely the crop observations described in the content of the PHB. These new annotations correspond to the information needs of the agronomists specified in the VESPA project. The next page presents these information needs expressed in the form of competency questions and the corresponding SPARQL queries.
