Description

Evaluate the toxicity of biological pesticides or repellents to control the spotted wing drosophila on everbearing raspberries grown in tunnels.

Objective(s)

  • Study various aspects of fertilization
  • Evaluate and develop control methods for the spotted wing drosophila on raspberries, including certain repellants
  • Analyze the economic yield of this production method
