HOW DO ORGANIC FARMERS CONTROL APHIDS & PRODUCE HIGH QUALITY LETTUCE WITHOUT PESTICIDES?
-With naturally occurring beneficial insects like hoverflies that eat aphids live! Farmers attract these good bugs into the field by intercropping lettuce with flowers like alyssum.
This interactive science video:
-shows how this amazing aphid control system works
-a more EFFICIENT and NOVEL way to achieve biological control of aphids with LESS LAND AREA and fewer weed problems.
-is based on RESEARCH by Dr. ERIC BRENNAN at the USDA Agricultural Research Service during 9 years of commercial-scale organic romaine lettuce production in Salinas Valley, California.
-includes TECHNICAL DETAILS and some HUMOR.
-efficient flower power.
-was first presented at the American Society of Horticulture Science annual conference in July 2013.
