The WG and SG convenors, 2016 (from left side): Petros Damos, Claudio Ioriatti, Lucía-Adriana Escudero-Colomar, Christian Linder and Arne Stensvand

Lucía-Adriana Escudero-Colomar 2016 stepped down as convenor of the "Pome fruit arthropods" subgroup after 8 years - her successor is Tim Belien.

Aim

The group deals with all aspects of integrated, biological, and organic plant protection in fruit production, with the exception of grapes, citrus and olives.

Activities

The group meets as a whole every 4 years, the sub groups meet every two years in the intervening years.

Achievements

Intensive work on methods and strategies for integrated plant protection in orchards, especially in the fields of pests and diseases, are the focal point of the working group activities. Technical guidelines for integrated pome, stone and soft fruit production have been published. These and results of specialised workshops are published in the IOBC-WPRS Bulletins:
