Heyne, P.; Benduhn, B.; Fieger-Metag, N. and Maxin, P. (2008) Regulation of Cydia pomonella in the Northern German climate. In: Boos, Markus (Ed.) Ecofruit - 13th International Conference on Cultivation Technique and Phytopathological Problems in Organic Fruit-Growing: Proceedings to the Conference from 18thFebruary to 20th February 2008 at Weinsberg/Germany, pp. 284-290.
Population control of the codling moth (Cydia pomonella) is of great importance in
ecological fruit-growing. In the work described here we attempted (1) to determine the
efficacy of plant protection preparations certified for organic fruit production, and (2) to
develop a suitable application strategy. We found that a Granulovirus (Madex3), Bacillus
thuringiensis (Xentari) and Neem Azal were able to provide effective control of C.
pomonella. The reduced efficacy of Madex 3 as reported e.g. from some Southern
German orchards could not be observed in our trials.
