Summary

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.
