NAPPFAST pest database (thresholds and growing degree days)

NAPPFAST relies on the use of specific biological parameters to run degree-day models.

An Insect Development Database containing developmental temperatures and degree-day requirements for key insects has been developed for common insect pests and some beneficial insects (Nietschke et al., 2007).   This includes insects commonly found in literature searches and insect pests from the Global Pest and Disease Database.
