Meyling, N.V.; Navntoft, S. and Eilenberg, J. (2010) Organic farming systems benefit biodiversity and natural pest regulation in white cabbage. ICROFS news, February 2010 (1), pp. 4-5.
Natural regulation of cabbage root flies works well in experimental organic cropping systems of white cabbage. Low input and complex organic systems benefit functional biodiversity by providing good living conditions to several groups of natural enemies. Intercropped green manure benefits large predators while small predatory beetles favour low input organic systems with bare soil between crop rows.
