The brine shrimp Artemia sp. As a factitious food for the mass production of predatory insects used in biological pest control

Dutch title: Het pekelkreeftje Artemia sp. Als voedingssubstraat voor de massaproductie van roofinsecten gebruikt in de biologische gewasbescherming
Period: January 2002 till October 2005
Status: Completed

Thesaurus terms: Aquaculture; Sustainable agriculture

The project evaluates the nutritional value of Artemia products for the mass production of Orius laevigatus, Podisus maculiventris and Harmonia axyridis, all economically important predators used in the biological control of agricultural pests. Based on biochemical analyses of the natural foor of these predatory insects, selected Artemia products will be enriched with specific nutritional components.
