Training, Biosecurity, Pest Management
In 2015 CABI asked Bondi Labs to create a mobile training game that complemented CABI’s PestSmart Diagnostics eLearning course. This simulation game would help train Plant Doctors who support farmers in developing countries around the world.
Plant Doctor supports and reinforces investigation and diagnosis skills of users through engaging gameplay and real time feedback. The game utilises simulated observation, inspection and deductive reasoning skills combined with prior PestSmart knowledge to build confidence and competence in plant pest and disease diagnosis.
In recent years CABI has taken on support of the app and rebranded it to 'PestSmart Diagnostic Simulator'.
