Dutch term or phrase: Gewasbestrijding
Please, help to understand
'Gewasbestrijding' - does it mean killing the crop (like onkruidbestrijding) or helping it to be not killing.

Text is about greenhouse vegetables:

Ze krijgen de meeste zonuren, zijn veilig vanwege biologische gewasbestrijding en vanwege de volledig gecontroleerde omgeving van de Nederlandse kassen.

crop protection
Explanation:
I believe that they mean biologische gewasbescherming. Surely in the context they cannot mean anything else but biological pest control.

agree  Lianne van de Ven: Very strange indeed to find 200+ hits on "gewasbestrijding" while it should be gewasbescherming and onkruidbestrijding. Weird case here: http://library.wur.nl/WebQuery/artik/lang/1714776
