1 year monitoring results – This monitoring project derives from an empirical research about the evolution of the bug in 2017 in Piedmont.
Attention: Halyomorpha halys has not to be confused with other bugs (EX: Gonocerus, Palomena, Nezara)
INTER-LINE JOBS/HAZELNUT from the first to the fifth year (growing period)
. 3 passages with offset tiller;
. 3 manual weeding with hoe at the base of the plant.
FIRST YEAR: no intervenes
SECOND YEAR: manual weeding at the end of the year
From the THIRD YEAR: 3 intervenes of shooting or one manual intervenes at the end of the year.
Estimated total costs: €650
Using a technique based on mulching, there will be a money save of the 70%: the cloth impede the
emission of new shots.
Mulching cloth costs: €0,65 mq
An implants with rows 6 mt. wide, reach a length of mt. 1666/ha.
An implants with rows 5 mt. wide, reach a length of mt. 2000/ha.
Mulching with an implant of 6 mt.
With 1 mt. long cloth: mq 1666 x € 0,45 = €749,07
With 1,5 mt. long cloth: mq 2500 x €0,45 = €1125,00
With 2 mt. long cloth: mq 3332 x €0,45 = € 1450,00
Mulching with an implant of 5 mt.
With 1 mt. long cloth: mq 2000 x €0,45 = €900,00
With 1,5 mt long cloth: mq 3000 x €0,45 = €1350,00
With 2 mt. long cloth: mq 4000 x €0,45 = €1800,00
Using the mulching technique, is needed just a little intervention on the shoots that could grow even
though the cloth presence.
