A mechanistic model was developed for the simulations of epidemics caused by air-borne fungal pathogens on any crops. Components of the infection process are simulated by specific sub-models which use metereological variables as driving variables and pathogen-related parameters. Model parameters are estimated from literature data by using original procedures. The main output of the model is the disease progress expressed as proportion of host tissue affected. The model is flexible because it can be easly adapted to a wide range of host-pathogen couples.
