Predator sound playbacks reduce crop damage on agricultural fields

A new study by SLU shows that predator sound playbacks can keep ungulates off crop fields and thus decrease damage on important crops. In collaboration with researchers of Western University, Canada,

Utility parks

In this project, we are building utility parks at four apple orchards in Skåne, to counteract the challenges today's agricultural landscape poses for biodiversity and to create benefits in apple

SLU Plant Protection Network

We promote and stimulate collaboration between researchers at SLU's different campuses, faculties and departments with the aim to strengthen SLU's profile in plant protection towards the outside

Plant protection at SLU

The SLU Plant Protection Network consists of over 200 researchers within plant protection and plant health at SLU. You are very welcome to contact us if you have a question about plant protection! Do

Grace contributes to food security with push-pull technologies

Grace Mercy want to contribute to food security, sustainable agriculture and new biocontrol solutions with her new PhD project on push-pull technology. This is a cropping system that that reduces

Landscape complexity promotes resilience of biological pest control

Ecosystem services can be vulnerable to climate change. How vulnerable depends on how resilient they are to, for example, changing temperatures. In a new study, landscape complexity was found to

Insects and rodents can keep agricultural weeds in check

By increasing biodiversity and taking advantage of ecosystem services, we can reduce the use of herbicides in agriculture. An example of an ecosystem service is seed predation by insects and rodents.

SLU Biodiversity and biocontrol lab

We perform research on biodiversity and biological control of pests and weeds in agricultural landscapes. We study the links between biodiversity, food-web structure and biological control, and how


Resilience of biological control A high diversity of predators can contribute to improved regulation of pests in the short-term, and theory predicts that it should increase resilience to disturbances

Environmental Assessment

We have central role in the monitoring of inland surface waters in Sweden. Our strength is the combination of research and environmental assessment.
