SUSFRUIT: Sustainable practices for thrips and aphids control in stone and seeds fruit crops

Starting date: 01/06/2020 End date: 31/05/2023
Programme: Sustainable Field Crops

Financing entities:

The goal of our project is to improve strategies for thrips and aphid control in pome and stone fruit orchards by developing innovative tools that contribute to the decrease of insecticide use. Our project focuses on two major fruit crops (nectarine and apple) for which Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs already exist, but that still rely on insecticides to control these two pests.
