The complexity of agricultural systems and the need to fulfill multiple objectives in sustainable agro-ecosystems call for interdisciplinary analyzes and input from a wide variety of disciplines in order to better understand the complete agronomic production system. Systems approaches have been developed to support these interdisciplinary studies; their development and use have increased strongly in the past decades. Systems analysis in agronomic systems implies the use of various types of…

Implementing the systems approach in pest management
AGUAS: Design of an Agricultural Water Quality System
The system design requirements characterize AGUAS as an information system that outputs activities to collect data about water quality in the designated region and responses to inputted demands for information from users to persuade them to adopt less polluting farm management systems.
Light is shed on all the elements that require attention to achieve successful IDM adoption at the national level in developing countries and how to achieve impact at the country level.

The green revolutions that occurred in the Western industrialized countries and in Asia in the late 1940s and early 1950s need to be followed by a similar increase in agricultural productivity in Africa and West Asia to feed their rapidly growing populations.
Integrated Disease Management: Concepts and Practices
The term Integrated Pest Management was first based on the concept of ‘integrated control’ given by the entomologists from University of California, who defined it as “applied pest control which
Models in research and education, planning and practice
The models are used for the analysis of agricultural, biological and ecological systems, for prediction of future developments and for exploration of possible behaviour of such systems.

Sustainable Pest Management
This section addresses the application of an ecosystemic approach in pest control issues in rooftop agriculture. Biotope (e.g., physical and climatic characteristics), possible biocenosis (e.g.,
A Comparison of Simulation Approaches to Epidemic Modeling
It is difficult to imagine modem epidemiology without quantitative techniques, the foremost of which is modeling, and when Waggoner and Zadoks separately reported the successful development of computer simulation modeling, there was euphoria among the ranks of quantitative epidemiologists.
