Slug control in no-till agriculture and slug population monitoring


Abstract: In the long-term field trial “Oberacker” of the Soil Protection Service, the slugpopulations were monitored and the effects of slug control treatments with Metaldehyde slugpellets were investigated. It was found that in the “no-till” plots the slug population recovers veryfast and reaches within a summer the same level as in spring. In “no-till” agro ecosystems theslug populations are constantly on a high level and have to be monitored all year round toundertake slug control measures at the right time.
