How to use flower strips for pest control in greenhouses

A new Greenresilient leaflet provides information about the choice of plant species, the best locations for flower strips, when and how to seed as well as how to optimise agroecological services.

Establishing flower strips in greenhouses can promote natural enemies. They can improve biological pest control in vegetable crops, which complement preventative measures and organic pesticides. Choosing suitable plant species and establishing them at the right time and place ensures food and shelter for a diverse community of natural enemies.
