Agenti di biocontrollo contro le malattie e gli organismi nocivi dei vegetali

Biological control is an old practice yet recently gaining attention again. In today’s agricultural practices, biological control needs to be up scaled to meet with growers’ expectations in terms of efficacy, ease of use and ultimately costs. The current project will research on highly potent strategies to biologically control pests and disease with antagonists to provide management strategies against major pests and diseases in orchards, vineyards, specialty and field crops. Utilizing approaches spanning from gene sequencing to citizen science, this project will deliver fundamental and applied knowledge to support the use of biological control agents and strategies by Swiss growers willing to operate a shift towards ecologically-sound practices.
