Control of the cabbage stem flea beetle

The agriculture and horticulture development board (ADHB) which is representing the farmers, growers and others in the supply chain in UK has commissioned together with some industry partners a project to better understand the biology of cabbage stem flea beetle.  Three different trials trials showed a promising control of the flea beetle: that the choice of the sowing date, growing of companion crops and applying digestate to seed-beds.
