Special issue on precision crop protection

Special issue on precision crop protection Precision Agric (2008) 9:339 DOI 10.1007/s11119-008-9090-0 EDITORIAL John V. Stafford Published online: 5 November 2008 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2008 A workshop on precision crop protection was held alongside the 5th European Conference on Precision Agriculture in Uppsala, Sweden, 2005. Such was the success of the workshop that some of the delegates, based at Bonn University, Germany, decided to organise a full conference on the topic in October 2007. This conference attracted about 100 researchers and others interested in the topic; they were able to listen to and discuss some 30 oral presentations. More than 20 posters were also exhibited. The topic of precision crop protection has been somewhat of a ‘cinderella’ topic in PRAG, with few papers published in the 9 volumes to date. The conference was therefore seen as an excellent source of material to correct that imbalance. Consequently, papers based on the oral presentations were invited and this special issue is the first result. I am indebted to Dr. Ken Evans, an international expert in nematology, for so ably editing the papers for this special issue. And I would also like to recognise the foresight of Dr. Erich-Christian Oerke for instigating the Bonn conference and, together with Mrs. Ingrid Sikora, so efficiently organising the meeting. J. V.
