E. Windbreak Design

Windbreaks improve crop production and quality by modifying the microclimate and
reducing wind erosion. They protect crops from insect pests by reduced crop
visibility, dilution of pest hosts due to plant diversity, interference with pest movement.
Gurr et al. (2004)
 Ecological engineering is a human activity that modifies the
environment according to ecological principles which is useful
conceptual framework for considering the practice of habitat
manipulation for arthropod pest management.
 This aimed to enhance the effectiveness of the natural
enemies. Adult parasitoids and predators significantly benefited
from source of nectar and the protection provided by refuge
(hedge rows, cover crops and weedy borders).
 Mixed planting increase the diversity of habitats and provide
more effective shelter and alternative food source to predators
and parasites
 Some methods in ecological engineering: Buckwheat strip,
beetle bank, strip cutting, buckwheat ground cover and
windbreak design.
