Abstract:

Biocontrol agents (BCAs) are promising tools for pest control in agriculture, thanks to their
low environmental impact and absence of chemical residues in the final product. The use of BCAs in
pest control of strawberry could be a valid alternative to chemical pesticides, providing healthier
produce for consumers and less impact to the environment. Growers’ viewpoint on BCAs can help
researchers in identifying weak points and strategies to promote BCAs use in agriculture. A survey,
aimed to understand how BCAs are considered and used by strawberry growers and what aspects
could be implemented to increase BCAs utilization, was done in two different agricultural systems, i.e.
northern Italy and Israel. The two selected areas differ in their climate, environment, farm dimension,
market and growers organization: northern Italy (Trentino) has a continental climate, is a mountain
area, farms are numerous, small and organised in cooperatives, mainly producing for the national
market during summer; Israel (central part) is flat with Mediterranean climate, farms are bigger and
focused on export in winter. Differences involve also phytosanitary problems, product efficacy and
hence grower’s satisfaction. Representative samples of growers were selected and interviewed.
Similarities and differences in information level and opinions between strawberry growers of the two
countries are presented. Result show also that marketing and experience have a key role to widespread
the practice of BCAs among the growers.
