Summary

This BioVine Practice Abstract provides practical recommendations for conserving and enhancing beneficials in organic vineyards. Field trials in several European vineyards confirmed that sown cover crops favoured the abundance of arthropods and predators. In particular, predatory beetles were more abundant in vegetated vineyards than in vineyards of bare soil.


EPrint Type:Practice tool
What problem does the tool address?:Bare vineyards are hostile environments for many beneficials since predators (e.g. predatory mites, spiders, carabids, ladybirds, hoverflies), parasitoids as well as pollinators rely on cover crops for the provided shelter and feed on their floral nectar and pollen.
What solution does the tool offer?:Beneficials’ activity can be increased by the provision of nectar- and pollen-rich plant species, such as plants from the families of Apiaceae, Asteraceae, Caryophyllaceae and Fabaceae.
