Webinar on NoBaSURV-PWN - a web app for assessing the statistical confidence of past pine wood nematode surveys

16. marraskuuta 2023

Finnish Food Authority is organising a webinar on NoBaSURV-PWN application on 13 December 2023, 14:00- 15:50 (EET, UTC+2).

NoBaSURV-PWN (https://nobasurv-pwn.rahtiapp.fi/) is a web application for assessing the statistical confidence of official pine wood nematode (PWN, Bursaphelenchus xylophilus) surveys done in the past. It can be used to assess a) the confidence of each year’s survey separately and b) the confidence accumulated in all past years’ surveys. In the webinar, we will demonstrate the use of the app and introduce the statistics it employs.

The project was a co-operation between the Finnish Food Authority, the Estonian Agriculture and Food Board (EAFB), the State Plant Service under the Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Lithuania (SPSMoA), the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food and Environment (VKM), and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU).
