    Abstract

    The revocation of many horticultural insecticides, particularly for cabbage root fly (Delia radicum) control, has increased the need to evaluate practical alternatives for the control of insect pests on vegetable field crops. One innovative approach being pursued is the use of novel physical barriers that can be applied to crops, which protect them from insect attack. An overview of the initial stages of this work in swedes and carrots, the methodology being followed and some results are presented.
