For tuning up sustainable organic strawberry production new measures in pest management needs to be developed. Both pest insects and pathogenic fungi reduces yields and fruit quality. Present study shows that mass trapping of strawberry blossom weevils by using volatile baited traps is not an efficient measure in an established field. However, in a new study traps will be combined with fencing of the field with insect net. There will also be a study on the effect of using ozonated water as a measure to prevent the fungus related disease grey mould to develop.
