During the workshop, a list of priority weeds for each participating country was established, and the initial factsheet and PMDG drafts were validated and/or amended. Additional factsheets and PMDGs were also compiled for weeds not identified during the initial literature search.

For each country, specific management information was added, including herbicidal control. A total of 10 factsheets and PMDGs were developed, and these will be published after a validation process by peer reviewers.

A knowledge bank on factsheet and PMDGs can be accessed on Plantwise Knowledge Bank or by using a gadget application for android (Plantwise Factsheets Library) downlodable from google play.
