Summary

Compared to conventional farming the pest management strategies in organic farming is based on better plant resistance and sustainable cultivation technique that does not destroy the natural enemies of pest insects. Methods that reduce feeding efforts of pests and maintain strong population of predators and parasitoid on crop plant, are the way forward for sustainable plant protection strategies. Volatile compounds extracted from plants and sprayed on crop plants are one of the key factors for the development of these techniques.
