Drastic reduction of insecticide use against pollen beetles is possible

A new European project aims to develop alternatives to pesticides for the control of pollen beetles in oilseed rape, thus paving the way for a drastically reduced use of insecticides.

Expanding the fight against potato blight

The pathogen causing potato blight is highly variable and evolves quickly, making it a serious challenge to control. A new international project will tackle the problem by analysing its genotypic and phenotypic variations and evolution, while designing better decision support systems.

Scientists aim to improve integrated pest management in greenhouses

The multiple and complex interactions between pests, beneficials and crops in greenhouse agroecosystems need to be fully understood in order to develop robust and reliable integrated pest management strategies.

Uncovering the secret life of mites

Berry bushes and azalea are among the numerous crops targeted by mites. Scientists from four different European countries are collaborating to learn more about these tiny and elusive species.

Intelligent weed control can reduce herbicide use

Scientists from three different European countries are collaborating to develop an improved decision support system to help farmers control weeds in maize and winter wheat, taking local conditions into regard.

Making wireworm behaviour easier to predict

Wireworms are masters at disappearing deeper into the dark depths of the soil when conditions call for it, making it difficult to control them. A new European project aims to learn more about wireworms in order to successfully predict when they can best be controlled.

Survey to understand current needs of end users

The multi-actor approach project, EMPHASIS, recently financed by SC2-H2020, aims to develop IPM practical solutions to protect agriculture, forestry and public green from native and introduced threats. The project has just launched a general survey of stakeholders to understand current needs of end users.
