INTERCROP Résumé de rapport

Project ID: QLK5-CT-2002-02352
Financé au titre de: FP5-LIFE QUALITY
Pays: France

Intercropping reduces cereal diseases, but can enhance pest damage

Intercrops have a stronger ability than sole crops for disease control on barley at relatively high levels of infestation. Effects on pea diseases were small. Pest damage due to Sitona lineatus and Bruchus pisorum may increase with intercropping. On the contrary, no difference was found regarding Acyrthosiphon pisum and Cydia nigricana
