In 2010/11, we surveyed over 100 grain growers in Northern NSW and QLD to find out their awareness and knoweledge of root-lesion nematodes and see how they wanted to be communicated with about them.
Using this information we created three 7 foot high information banners for researchers to errect at field days, wrote two artciles for the Groundcover publication and created an iPad display which had an interactive factsheet, videos of researchers talking about how growers can manage nematodes and test for nematodes anfd a range of Google maps which showed where root-lesion nematodes had been found.
We also educated the researchers in using Google maps so they could visualise their soil testing data.
Finally, we proposed to our client that they consider a website and mobile app.
