MARYBLYT is a computer model system that was developed to assist growers when making management decisions regarding the control of fire blight. This disease is potentially devastating to pome fruit orchards and has traditionally been difficult and expensive to control. The collaboration between the Univ. of Maryland and the USDA Agricultural Research Service to develop MARYBLYT is reviewed to provide information that should be considered when such an effort is undertaken to address any research need using computer applications. Specifically, the development of the software for the MARYBLYT system is presented.
