Current status of mating disruption in Turkey: Where are we at?


Abstract: Mating disruption, which involves the use of synthetic sex pheromones to disrupt insect sexual orientation, is an alternative control method that may lead to worldwide transition from insecticide-based management alone to integrated pest management (IPM). In this paper, an historical perspective on the incorporation of mating disruption into IPM programs in Turkey is provided. Examples are taken from apple, apricot, cotton, peach and grape.
