Abstract

Managing pests while encouraging and supporting beneficial insects is an essential part of an integrated pest management strategy and is a key component of sustainable crop production. The number of available insecticides is declining, so it is increasingly important to use them only when absolutely necessary to safeguard their longevity and minimise the risk of the development of resistance. The Sustainable Use Directive (2009/128/EC) lists a number of provisions aimed at achieving the sustainable use of pesticides, including the promotion of low input regimes, such as integrated pest management.
