The overall aim of the proposed project is to develop alternative, sustainable, non-pesticidal methods for managing Botrytis, mildew, blackspot, aphids, blossom weevil and capsid bugs on strawberry so greatly reducing (by >50%) pesticide use and eliminating the occurrence of reportable pesticide residues on harvested fruit.
