Faba beans (also called fava beans) are one example of plants that work ...

  • Compatibility of Soil-Dwelling Predators and Microbial Agents and their Efficacy in Controlling Soil-Dwelling Stages of Western Flower Thrips Frankliniella Occidentalis

    Western flower thrips (WFT) generally pupate in the soil. This laboratory study was designed to examine the compatibility of soil-dwelling predators with microbial biocontrol agents and assess their combined efficacy against pupating WFT, with a view to their integrated use.
