Example text

Trap Cropping Trap cropping involves planting a decoy plant near susceptible vegetables to draw away the destructive insects. These ‘decoy plants’ are then netted and removed when they become infested and are discarded. More decoy plants will be used to replace the ones discarded. One example of this is the use of Nasturtium. These are smaller flowering plants sometimes referred to as ‘watercress’. Nasturtium attract caterpillars that will also attack lettuce and cabbage plants. The nasturtium plants are located near the patches of lettuces and cabbages thereby reducing the pest damage to the desired plants.

They are attracted to the scent of the host plant. If you have ever stepped into a greenhouse with thriving tomato plants you have experienced the sensation that these insects do. The insect avoids landing on bare soil, there are predators there that can kill them. So they land on the first ‘green’ thing they can locate. From there, the insect begins hopping from leaf to leaf searching for the perfect perch on which to feast. According to studies done, if the insect cannot find a suitable location on something ‘green’ they will give up and fly away.

Disease, pests, and other animals take their toll on the home grower’s garden. Plus, in a limited space, it’s difficult to grow all the vegetables you love if your idea of gardening is the traditional one or two rows per species of plant. There are solutions to these and other problems. One of them is companion planting. Companion planting involves strategic location of the veggies and fruit that you plant to maximize space available, deter or distract pests and to take advantage of the nutrients available in the soil where you live.
