SPEISER, E. WYSS AND V. 3. Implications for various biological control agents From the point of view of organic farming, three categories of biological control agents must be considered separately: predators and parasites, natural microorganisms and genetically modified microorganisms. 1. Predators and parasites This category includes mainly predatory and parasitic insects which attack crop pests, but also predatory mites, other arthropods and nematodes for the control of insects or molluscs. All standards mention the use of predators and parasites in crop production.
