Juli 2020 - Press reports on the launch of the project „MELOPHYL“ in Zams

Scarabaeidae monitoring and persistence assessment of the fungal pathogens Beauveria and Metarhizium in selected infested areas in Tyrol

In cooperation with the Landwirtschaftskammer Tirol (LWT), Department of Plants, Forestry and Bio, the Bezirkslandwirtschaftskammer Landeck, and the Amt der Tiroler Landesregierung, a Melolontha- and Phyllopertha- Monitoring, with focus on the western region, is to be realized.

In addition, the success of the application of the products MelocontTM-mushroom barley and GranMet-PTM will be tested. Furthermore, the application of the mushroom products once or twice in different quantities will be tested at six locations for the sustainable control of the cock- and garden chafer (project duration: until the end of 2021).

May 2020 - ORF report - „Vorarlberg Heute“, 31st of May 2020


Machine for controlling cockroaches

In the Montafon, engerlings caused major damage in the previous year. In the valley the pests are controlled with fungi on barley grains, but on slopes it is difficult to apply this product to the soil. A company in Bings has now developed a special machine for this. The BIPESCO team Innsbruck of the University of Innsbruck in cooperation with a partner has developed a liquid agent based on Beauveria brongniartii, which can be applied into the soil with the help of this MMExit machine. .

Plagued by cockchafers - New technology for mountain regions

"Engerlings can cause great damage in grassland, and Vorarlberg, among others, is severely affected by this. A new technique has now been developed for tackling this problem. Dr. Strasser, from the University of Innsbruck, was so enthusiastic about the MMexit device that he immediately thought about the requirements for the active ingredient".

The project MM-EXiT deals with the application of a Beauveria dispersion formulation for sustainable control of cockchafer larvae in exposed steep slope areas.
