We support organic farming!
A quarter of food consumed in Europe contains residues of two or more pesticides, according to the annual report of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). (https://www.efsa.europa.eu/en/efsajournal/pub/6491)
We note that there are countries that have long found an ecological alternative to control plant pests and a successful practice to grow safety fruits and vegetables. Of course, it’s the use of pheromones as attractive and disruptive to sexual behavior.
About the ecological control of the pests on apple, pear, quince, plum, grape etc. you can find more information here https://www.ecocenter.md/category/crop-pests-pheromone-lures.
The use of pheromone traps for plant protection has a number of advantages:
- Pests are detected in time
- Reduce the costs for protection
- Non toxic
- It doesn't pollute the environment
- Organic fruits and vegetables
- Don’t harm entomophages and pollinators.
In fact, it’s known that pest control methods using pheromones, ensure a BIO-harvest.
This means that farming can be without chemicals.
