Monitoring of the paraguayo fields at Finca Valleluz

11.03.2014 By: Transfer LBC

The field specialists of ¨Finca Valleluz¨ are performing the monitoring and control of the stone fruit trees in the fields of the project.

They have pruned the trees and placed pheromone traps. These traps are used to create sexual confusion which in turn works disruptive on the mating rituals of insects. This is the recommended method to control caterpillars and moths who would otherwise damage the crop.

In the fields where the paraguayo trees grow, traps were placed to specifically monitor Anarsia lineatella and Cydia molesta.
