Habitat management using native Australian plants to deliver pest suppression and other ecosystem services in brassica crops.
Habitat management, a technique to modify environment of agroecosystem by planting companion plants to benefit natural enemies for conservation biological control can provide different other ecosystem services. This study aims to examine how habitat management by Australian native plants will benefit insect pest suppression through enhancement of natural enemies’ longevity and their abundance in field, along with provision of other ecosystem services.
