Ecologically safe protection of the sweet cherry orchard (Cerasus avium Moench.) from cherry fruit fly (Rhagoletis cerasi L.) in the conditions of the organic horticulture / Shevchuk I.V., Tonkonozhenko A.A. // Sadivnytstvo (Horticulture). – 2015. – 70. – P. 89-93. – Refs.: 7. – in Ukrainian.
The authors have elucidated the results of the researches on the sweet cherry protection from the cherry fruit fly by means of yellow glue traps in different zones of horticulture, namely: the right gank part of the Ukraine’s western Lisosteppe and Donbas. The high efficient way against the phytophagas appeared the distribution: the Lisosteppe – 4 and 5 traps, per tree that provides the catch of 1145 and 1220 imago/trap respectively during the season and technical efficiency 69,5 and 70,3%, in the Steppe 6 and 7 traps, 458 imago/trap and 44,7 and 56,6% respectively. The proposed method makes possible to protect fruits reliably against the pest attacks when the investigated crop cultivationg in the conditions of the organic horticulture.
Key words: cherry fruit fly, yellow glue traps, technical efficiency, fruits damage, organic horticulture, phytophag harmfulness, protection method.
