Wageningen researchers seem to have found a natural enemy of the suzuki fruit fly that has been plaguing Dutch fruit-growing. The fungus Metarhizium robertsii blocks the reproduction of the fruit flies almost completely, as cage tests carried out by Wageningen Plant Research have shown. Next year the fungus will be field tested.
