The Plantwise Knowledge Bank Booklet Builder helps you build a custom booklet containing Plantwise factsheets and Pest Management Decision Guides of your choice.

Here at the Plantwise Knowledge Bank, we endeavour to provide you not only with cutting-edge plant health information from across the globe. But, we also want you to have an excellent user experience whenever you visit our site. We currently have over 15,000 content pieces. These include pest management decision guides, factsheets, species pages, photosheets, and manuals, all of which are online and absolutely free.

Now, we realise not everyone has access to the internet all the time. What’s more, you may want to have access to the factsheets most useful to you when you are offline.

This is where the handy factsheets booklet builder comes in. With this tool, you can download factsheets of interest to you so you can print them out or save them as one PDF file on your device. This allows you to access important information anytime, whether you are online or offline.
