More proof biodiversity reduces the need for chemicals: Leaving strips of wildflowers across fields

• arclein

The wildflowers were planted in strips across 15 large arable lands in central and eastern England, according to a report, and will serve as the source of data that will show the effectiveness of the method in keeping crops healthy near the center of the field. This is evidently quite important, as one of the researchers plainly states, "If you imagine the size of a [ground beetle], it's a bloody long walk to the middle of a field." So if wildflower use is truly effective when implemented on the outer areas of crop fields, then it could also have similar effects when planted in the inside areas.
