Samenvatting

Biological pest control in tomato crops has been disrupted by invasive pest species. Rijk Zwaan Breeding BV recently selected a tomato mutant that does not produce the type VI glandular trichomes, which gives opportunities to apply biological control with natural enemies that otherwise would not survive on tomato plants. The purpose of this study is to design a new resilient ecosystem of natural enemies for pest management on hairless tomato plants.
