Title Control of oilseed rape pests
Official Acronym Bioraps
FiBL project number 25010
Abstract

Oilseed rape attracts a number of pest insects which can be hardly controlled in organic production. Especially the pollen beetle (Meligethes aeneus) can cause severe damage. In a first project from 2008 to 2012, different approaches were investigated:

  1. the use of stone meal,
  2. the use of entomopathogenic fungi,
  3. the development of a better forecasting models, and
  4. the effects of different cultivation methods on pollen beetle infestation level and yield.
