“…These examples show that agrobiodiversity can provide ecological means to protect and intensify agricultural production and that this generally leads to the diversification of the agrosystem. There are yet a lot of knowledge gaps to be filled to be able to really manage these interactions at different scales of time and space and obtain improvements of performances and resilience [39].…”

“…A pull strategy was developed to combat Chilo sacchariphagus (spotted borer), a significant sugarcane pest. Female borers were pulled to nesting sites on a trap plant, Erianthus arundinaceus, which was planted around the perimeter of the sugarcane plot achieving a 90 % reduction in attacks with a 20 % increase in yield (Ratnadass et al 2013). The effects were observed up to 40 m from the edge of the plot (Nibouche et al 2012).…”
