Summary

Codling-moth and applescab are the most important pathogens in both conventional and
organic apple productions. In order to control any phytopathological problem, it is
important to improve the knowledge of the behaviour of each specific pest. Since several
years (starting from 1986) we are improving in Trentino (North-Eastern Italy) the
observations of the population dynamics of codling-moth in order to find the best way to
control and treat this pest insect.
Constant monitoring and the knowledge of the characteristics of the different compounds
and possible methods to control the codling-moth (mating disruption, granulose virus and
specific nematodes) represent the most important basis to organize an effective controlstrategy.
