Abstract Development of IPM program has promoted the use of pesticides selective for beneficial arthropods, as parasites and predators of agricultural pests (Franz et al. , 1980, Hassan et al., 1983,1987, 1988, 1991,1994, Hautier et al., 2006, Sterk et al., 1999). However, sereval other products, as nitrogen fertilizers are also routinely applied on crops in a same way as pesticides and pods, are not known. the aim of this study is to assess the possible side-effects of nitrogen fertilizer formulations applied as foliar spray on the parathropod for aphid control and a species very sensitive to pesticides, used as "standard species" for ecotoxicological tests in the context of registration at European level.
