We examine the biology of pests (insects, mites, nematodes) and antagonists as well as their interactions with host plants and cultivation methods. Our research work enables us to provide the basics for monitoring and eco-friendly controlling of pest organisms. We develop and evaluate pest management schemes (chemical, biotechnological and biological) and provide recommendations for practical applications: The use of antagonists has become quite important. We also perform tests for pesticide registration purposes.
Based in our research on ecophysiology and insect behaviour we develop phenology methods for key pests and establish decision support systems (DSS) for practical purposes.
We also provide diagnostic services of quarantine pests and offer scientific support to Cantonal departments and offices.
