Our domain …

R&D for site-tuned IPM & pest-resilient landscapes

inSilico-IPM is a micro-SME engaged in research, development and consulting. We combine scientific expertise with experience in development of practical solutions to insect-caused problems. We cooperate at regional and local level with academic partners and practitioners on:

  • Empiric studies and stochastic simulation of the on-farm pest behaviour and ecology
  • Development of IPM tools & methods
  • Development of site-specific IPM schemes adjusted to the local farm topography
  • Enhancement of insect detection and monitoring through adjustment to the local site topography
  • Designing modifications to agro-landscape and farm topography for enhancement of pest-resilience
In addition to conducting research and providing specialised services, inSilico-IPM develops, in collaboration with partners, state-of-the-art scientific and applied research projects
