Do sown wildflower strips enhance the parasitism of lepidopteran pests in cabbage crops?


Do sown wildflower strips enhance the parasitism of lepidopteran pests in cabbage crops?

ISSN/ISBN: 1027-3115

We investigated the parasitism rates of cabbage lepidopteran pest in relation to the presence or absence of adjacent sown, species rich wildflower strips at two sites on farms in Grosses Moos, Switzerland. Three treatments were tested: (1) cabbage adjacent to a wildflower strip, (2) cabbage near to a wildflower strip (>10 m up to 90 m), and (3=control) cabbage without wildflower strip or any other semi-natural habitats nearby.
