Pest management


Management and cutting plan of landscape elements

This is a plan to maintain and manage the various components of a farm's landscape. It involves determining which parts of the farm should be cut or trimmed, as well as what should be kept as it is. It also includes deciding when and how to prune, mow, and fertilize the landscape components in order to keep them healthy and looking their best. It refers to the management of hedges, vegetation strips and other landscape elements at a territory scale.

Planting landscape elements

Planting landscape elements in farming refers to the practice of strategically planting vegetation and trees on or around agricultural land to provide a variety of benefits. These elements can include trees and shrubs that can help to provide windbreaks, shade, and provide natural habitat for wildlife. Additionally, planting landscape elements can help reduce soil erosion, help protect soil and water resources, and provide a more efficient use of land.

Avoiding chemical-synthetic pesticides

Reducing chemical-synthetic pesticides in agriculture is a form of pest control that seeks to reduce or eliminate the use of synthetic chemical pesticides in favor of more sustainable methods. This can include using natural pest predators, crop rotation, and other alternatives to chemical-based pesticides. These methods are often more environmentally-friendly and can lead to a reduction in the amount of residues in the environment.

Application of microbial plant biostimulants in plant protection

Microbial plant biostimulants are a type of organic fertilizer that contain beneficial microorganisms that can help promote healthy plant growth and protect plants from pests and diseases. These microorganisms can be applied to the soil or directly to the plant, and can help improve soil fertility, increase plant vigor, and reduce disease incidence. They can also help improve crop yield by increasing the availability of nutrients and water in the soil, and helping plants to better tolerate stress. Reduction the use of pesticides by using commercially available biostimulant microbes.

Pest monitoring

Pest monitoring in farming is the practice of regularly checking crops and soil for signs of insect pests and other diseases. This helps farmers identify potential problems before they become severe, allowing them to take preventative measures to protect their crops. Pest monitoring can involve checking for physical signs of pests, such as egg masses or feces, or using traps and other detection tools.Pest monitoring in farming is the practice of regularly checking crops and soil for signs of insect pests and other diseases.

Relay intercropping

Relay intercropping describes a cropping pattern in which the lifecycle of one crop overlaps that of another crop. Relay intercropping is a form of crop rotation where two or more crops are grown together in the same area. This system of planting allows for the use of space more efficiently and encourages the growth of beneficial plants that can improve soil fertility and reduce weed growth. The plants are planted in successive waves, with different crops planted in each wave.

Beneficial biocontrol organisms

Beneficial biocontrol organisms are living creatures that are used to help control pests and disease in an eco-friendly and natural way. These organisms can include predators, parasites, and other beneficial insects that consume or attack pests, or fungi and bacteria that are used to control plant diseases. Biocontrol organisms can be used to help reduce the use of chemical pesticides and can provide a more sustainable way to manage pests and disease.
