Classical biocontrol measures are not specifically linked to organic agriculture but are also part of an organic plant protection strategy. However, knowledge on biocontrol strategies in apple production is still limited and for the key diseases, such as apple scab and mildew, no biocontrol solutions are on the market yet. 5. 1. Outline of strategies for disease and parasite control in organic animal husbandry Until recently, organic animal husbandry has relied largely on conventional veterinary approaches for the control of diseases and parasites.

The use of microbial control agents is also possible, but is not favoured by the major regulations and standards. In the authors’ personal view, the use of microbial control agents can be preferable to the use of plant or mineral derived pesticides, in cases in which this causes less side-effects on the environment. In contrast, the use of genetically modified biological control agents is not allowed. Strategies for organic crop protection are available for a few crops, but are still lacking for many others.
