Abstract:
      This paper presents a Filippov plant disease model incorporating an economic threshold of infected-susceptible ratio, above which control strategies of replanting or removing are needed to be carried out. Based on the Filippov approach, we study the sliding mode dynamics and further the global dynamics. It is shown that there is a unique equilibrium, which is a disease-free equilibrium, an endemic equilibrium or a pseudo-equilibrium. Moreover, the equilibrium is proved to be globally asymptotically stable. Our results indicate that the control goal can be achieved by taking appropriate replanting and removing rate.
