Integrated Pest Management (IPM) - Focus on Brassica species

What cost-effective IPM solutions are there for Brassica? What other solutions can be proposed?


The final report of this Focus Group has been published.

Tasks:

  • Identifying (types of) pests and diseases relevant for Brassica for different EU regions.
  • Comparing methods between different specialty crops and, particularly, between specialty crops and rapeseed.
  • Analysing existing IPM methods from the cost-effectiveness point of view.
  • Listing ongoing IPM experiments for Brassica.
  • Collecting existing IPM practices (including soil-borne) for Brassica and indicate where improvement is needed.
  • Preparing a gap analysis indicating where new solutions need to be found;
  • Producing priorities for further research actions.
  • Suggesting potential practical operational group projects to test new IPM methods for Brassica and potential projects for practical operational groups and other project formats to test new IPM methods for Brassica.
