Brassica cover crops can reduce nematode pests in vineyards: a Core Organic Cofund research

The possibility of controlling soil-borne pest nematodes by using Brassica* species. plants as cover crops in the inter-row space of vineyards followed by biomass incorporation and so called biofumigation was investigated in the CORE Organic Cofund project BIOVINE. The results are very interesting, and more information and details can be found at this LINK

An Italian research: more ants in organic vineyards

Ants living underground, in the anthills, create numerous tunnels that allow air to circulate through the soil, making the land more productive for the benefit of agriculture, something that many ignore. Some types of ants prey on and kill other insects that feed on some crops.
