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.
