Biological regulate is likely one of the so much promising equipment for keep an eye on of pests (including vectors), illnesses and weeds. during this ebook ecological and societal features are for the 1st time taken care of jointly. In an ecological process the purpose is to judge the importance of sure organic homes like biodiversity and ordinary habitats. additionally, it is very important see organic regulate from an natural (or ecological) farming viewpoint. In a societal process phrases like ‘consumer’s attitude’, ‘risk perception’, ‘learning and schooling’ and ‘value triangle’ are recognized as major for organic creation and human welfare.

Genetically modified microorganisms The use of genetically modified microorganisms as biocontrol agents is prohibited by all standards, as detailed above. 4. Discussion points As described above, the major standards for organic farming recommend the use of predators and parasites, while the use of microbial control agents is only allowed. The authors have some reservations against this hierarchy: (i) many of the predators and parasites which are commercially available originate from industrial production almost as much as microbial control agents; (ii) some of the commercially available predators and parasites are not native species; (iii) some predators will attack a large number of non-target species, while many microbial control agents have a narrow host range and thus less impact on non-target species.
