  4. Garden design is cri7cal for seNng the stage for garden success and environmental stewardship. In this training we consider a polycultures approach to garden design. The concept embraces growing mul7ple crops in the same space, in imita7on of the diversity of natural ecosystems....
  5. Abstract, 2008, Soil & Water Research Soil and water salinization are affecting an increasing number of countries in the world, especially in arid and semi-arid regions, and cause sensible reductions of agricultural land extension and of crop yields. Consociation with halophytic plants is a...
  6. Halophytesare salt-tolerant plants that are found throughout the world. Halophytes can be used to grow both fuel and food, and a NASA facility is attempting to use halophytes for large-scale fuel production. The aim is to create aviation-grade biofuels without using any arable land, freshwater,...
  7. Abstract, 2013, InTech Companion planting has received less attention from researchers than other diversification schemes (such as insectary plants and cover crops), but this strategy is widely utilized by organic growers [8, 9]. Generally, recommendations on effective companion-target pairings...
  8. Certain plants can benefit others when planted in close proximity or used as botanical pesticides. This publication discusses the scientific and traditional basis for companion planting associations including trap cropping, weed suppression, physical-spatial interactions, and other relationships....
  9. In recent years, salinity has become the most important issue in fields, gardens and greenhouses as well. This, of course, has forced us to control saline areas, and therefore, many control mechanisms that have been put forward. Many of them (genetics, biochemical and physical) have not brought...
  10. Abstract, In order to evaluate the effects ofSalsola sodaL. andPortulaca oleraceaL. used as companion plants on growth and yield of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) in salt stress conditions, a trial was conducted in soil-filled benches of a greenhouse in Central Italy. The plant...
  11. 20/1/2005 Companion planting is Fundamental #3. It is also called inter cropping. These crops are used for insect control, to make wind blocks, and they promote soil conservation. When harvested, they are used for compost and feed for livestock. Companion plants also create a desirable mulch and green...

This would be the first place to identify the appropriate & sustaining plants for these islands. It includes information on 235 important plants from ‘A’ALI’I through...
  13. 11/7/2016 La siembra complementaria es una forma de cultivo intercalado que por lo general se practica en huertos de pequeña escala en los cuales dos o más especies de plantas son cultivadas unas junto a otras para compartir beneficios. Por ejemplo, las hortalizas que gustan de la sombra como la lechuga...
  14. Companion plantingin gardening and agriculture is the planting of different crops in proximity forpest control,pollination, providinghabitatfor beneficial creatures, maximizing use of space, and to otherwise increasecrop productivity.[1]Companion planting is a form ofpolyculture. Companion...
  15. Abstract, 2017, Turkish Journal of Agriculture and Forestry Salt-induced land degradation has gradually increased in several major irrigation schemes within arid and semiarid regions. To maximize crop productivity under saline conditions, either salt tolerance crops should be cultivated or areas...
  16. Abstract, 2018, Sustainability Saline irrigation water can lead to salt buildup and reduced crop yields. Halophytic plants are known to accumulate excess salts in tissues, removing them from the immediate environment. This two-phase experiment explored the feasibility of intercropping watermelon...

Travel with us through our design process to create an ecologically balanced and appropriate diagram to implement, whether on small acreage or vast hectares of land. Learn the steps and...
  18. Although agricultural systems in which two or more useful plants are grown simultaneously on the same area have been receiving increasing attention in recent years, the practice has long been recognized as a way in which farmers in the tropics and subtropics with limited land resources can...
  19. 2/1/1998 The magic and mystery of companion planting have intrigued and fascinated humans for centuries, yet it is a part of the gardening world that has never been fully explored. First published in 1975, this classic companion planting guide has taught a generation of gardeners how to use plants'...
  20. Abstract, 2014, Annals of Botany Recruiting wild halophytes with economic potential was suggested several decades ago as a way to reduce the damage caused by salinization of soil and water. A range of cultivation systems for the utilization of halophytes have been developed, for the production of...
  21. Abstract, Applied Entomology and Zoology, 2019 Intensive agriculture, which is associated with heavy inputs of synthetic insecticides, has serious ecological impacts, leading to loss of vital ecosystem services including insect-mediated pest suppression. In recent years, efforts have been made...

  24. Abstract, 2012, Journal of Insect Science Intercropping is one of the important cultural practices in pest management and is based on the principle of reducing insect pests by increasing the diversity of an ecosystem.

  25. icipeis a tropical organisation with a tropical agenda. But why study insects? Because in the tropics, insects are a fact of life to be reckoned with. Insects pose a great risk to food production, often causing the loss of entire crops and destroying about half of all harvested food in storage....
