Summary

This CORE Organic Practice Abstract provides practical recommendations for physical protection barriers to reduce fungal and pest damages, which help to reduce plant protection products application, and could help to reduce the losses, especially where the current phytoiatric strategy doesn’t help.


EPrint Type:Practice tool
What problem does the tool address?:Pests and diseases control can be a real challenge for organic farmers, as there is only a limited number of plant protection products approved on the market, and sometimes their efficacy is only moderate.
What solution does the tool offer?:Physical protection barriers can help to reduce losses caused by pests and diseases. Lateral barriers (i.e. exclusion nets) avoid the contact between insects and trees, while the rainproof roof reduces leaves wetness, thus the proliferation of important fungal diseases, and fruit cracking.
Country:Italy
Type of Practice Tool:Practice abstracts
Theme:Pest and disease control
Keywords:Reduction of plant protection products, physical barriers, rainproof roof, pest and diseases control, exclusion nets
