- ... Grass buffer strips are often deployed along crop borders as part of conservation programs to improve water quality, filter sediments from runoff, and foster wildlife biodiversity. Addition of wildflowers in these strips can augment natural enemies by provisioning nectar and pollen resources. Here we investigated the impact of partridge pea [Chamaecrista fasciculata (Michx.) Greene] as an insectar ...

- ... Flower strips appear to be a promising lever for promoting pest control but a careful selection of the plant species used is needed prior to implementation to avoid possible negative side effects. In the case of open field melon crops, the main pitfall would be to generate aphid and aphid-borne virus reservoirs near the crops. Combining biotests under controlled conditions and data from the litera ...
