    The codling moth is a key pest of pome fruit and walnut orchards in most temperate regions of the world. Efforts to control the codling moth in the past mostly relied on the use of insecticide sprays, which has resulted in the development of insecticide resistance. The sterile insect technique (SIT) and inherited sterility (IS) are, together with mating disruption and granulosis virus, among the options that offer great potential as cost-effective control tactics. In support of the further development of the SIT/IS for codling moth control, the Joint FAO/IAEA Programme of Nuclear Techniques in Food and Agriculture implemented a 5-year Coordinated Research Project (CRP) entitled ‘Improvement of codling moth SIT to facilitate expansion of field application’. Research focussed on sterile codling moth quality and management and a better understanding of the basic genetics of codling moth to assist the development of genetic sexing strains. The results of the CRP are summarized here.
