    Abstract

    The objective of this report is the collation of existing and innovative non-chemical tools for key pests and diseases of pomefruit in 5 European regions.This report gives also a brief overview of the major pests in apple and pear orchards for the 5 regions in the context of their climatic and common cultivation conditions. The report is meant to be used as a guide within the frame of the PURE project for the identification of innovative IPM tools and assembling IPM solutions for pest control in pomefruit, i.e. developing for each key pest and region specific toolboxes, consisting of a set of complementary, promising toolsand strategies for pest management. In order to achieve this aim and to ease the data collation a database was developed.
