Synergising pest deterrence and plant defence induction: a novel integrated pest management system for Trialeurodes vaporariorum on glasshouse grown tomato


Abstract: Pre-treatment with methyl salicylate (MeSA) reduces whitefly performance on tomato under glasshouse conditions only initially. A combination of MeSA sprayed plants and slow release bottles of limonene is the most effective at controlling whitefly populations.
