Project: Artificial diets for the production of natural enemies (predators and parasitoids) of greenhouse pest insects.

01-FEB-99 – 31-JUL-02

The implementation of biological pest control in greenhouse crops is hampered by the high production costs of the natural enemies used. Automizing the production process can make the mass rearing of these natural enemies more cost effective. In this research project, artificial diets for some economically important predators and parasitoids of insect pests will be developed.
