Using infochemicals to develop a push–pull strategy in pest control is a potential way to promote sustainable crop production. Infochemicals from plant essential oils were mixed with paraffin oil for slow release in field experiments on wheat to control the population density of cereal aphids and to enhance their natural enemies. (Z)-3-Hexenol (Z3H) attracted Metopolophum dirhodum and Sitobion avenae, the predominant species on wheat in Belgium, and may be a useful infochemical for aphid control by attracting aphids away from field plots. Release of (E)-β-farnesene (EBF) or a garlic extract (GE) led to a significant decrease in the abundance of wheat aphids. The main natural enemies of cereal aphids found were lacewings (47.8%), hoverflies (39.4%), and ladybirds (12.8%). Ladybird abundance varied little before the end of the wheat-growing season. Our results suggest that these chemicals can form the basis of a “push–pull” strategy for aphid biological control, with GE and EBF acting as a pestand beneficial-pulling stimulus and Z3H for aphid pulling.

Aphids cause serious damages to crops not only by tacking sap but also by transmitting numerous viruses. To develop biological control, the aphid alarm pheromone, namely E-β-farnesene (EβF), has been demonstrated to be efficient to repel aphids and as attract beneficials, making it a potential tool to control aphid pests. Considering aphids also as virus vectors, changes of their behaviour could also interfere with the virus acquisition and transmission process. Here, a combination of two aphid species and two potato virus models were selected to test the influence of EβF release on aphid and virus dispersion under laboratory conditions. EβF release was found to significantly decrease the population of M. persicae and M. euphorbiae around the infochemical releaser but simultaneously also increasing the dispersal of Potato Virus Y (PVY). At the opposite, no significant difference for Potato Leaf Roll Virus (PLRV) transmission efficiency was observed with similar aphid alarm pheromone releases for none of the aphid species. These results provide some support to carefully consider infochemical releasers not only for push – pull strategy and pest control but also to include viral disease in a the plant protection to aphids as they are also efficient virus vectors. Impact of aphid kinds and transmission mechanisms will be discussed according to the large variation found between persistent and non persistent potato viruses and interactions with aphids and related infochemicals.

Intercropping is a farming practice consisting of cultivating at least two plant species simultaneously in the same field, but without necessarily sowing and/or harvesting them at the same time. By increasing plant diversity at the field scale, intercropping may be an efficient method to control insect pests and support natural enemies on the associated crops. We performed a systematic research of the peer-reviewed literature which studied the effect of intercropping systems on pests and natural enemies, compared to pure stands. The research was restricted to wheat-based systems, as it is an important crop worldwide, and the main one in Northern China. A total of fifty research papers were obtained from the literature search. Results from a vote-counting analysis, using binomial tests, indicated that pest abundance was significantly reduced in intercropping systems compared with pure stands, but their natural enemies were not particularly favoured (i.e., predators and parasitoids). Among these papers, 23 were studies from China. There, wheat was associated with cotton in relay-intercropping, as well as alfalfa, chili peppers, fava bean, garlic, mung bean, oilseed rape and pea in strip-cropping. Aphids were systematically reduced and natural enemies (i.e., predators and parasitoids) significantly favoured in intercropping systems compared to pure stands. This study shows that intercropping is a viable practice to biologically control pests, and potentially support natural enemies, especially in China. Therefore it can be seen as a viable method to reduce insecticide use in wheat production systems. [less ▲]

Jasmonic acid (JA) and salicylic acid (SA) are important phytohormones for activating plant defense responses when plants suffer from mechanical damage or pest infestation. In response to plant defense responses, insects usually increase the detoxification enzyme activity or secrete some saliva proteins into plants to modulate host cell processes to promote their adaptation. In this study, we used real-time qPCR to detect the relative gene expression of detoxification enzyme named glutathione S-transferases (sigma GST) and salivary gland-specific protein C002 in Myzus persicae after feeding with 5mM JA or 10mM SA through artificial diet. The results showed that the relative expression of sigma GST and C002 in M. persicae increased significantly after JA and SA treatments. The results revealed that M. persicae can use JA and SA as cues to up-regulate gene expression of related detoxification enzyme and saliva protein. Our results provided new insights into the research on the mechanism of M. persicae adaptation to host plant resistance. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is one of the most cultivated crops in temperate climates. As its pests are mainly controlled with insecticides which are harmful to the environment and human health, alternative practices such as intercropping have been studied for their potential to promote biological control. Based on the published literature, this study aimed to review the effect of wheat-based intercropping systems on insect pests and their natural enemies. RESULTS: Fifty original research papers were obtained from a systematic search of the peer-reviewed literature. Results from a vote-counting analysis indicated that, in the majority of studies, pest abundance was significantly reduced in intercropping systems compared with pure stands. However, the occurrence of their natural enemies as well as predation and parasitism rates were not significantly increased. The country where the studies took place, the type of intercropping, and the crop that was studied in the association had significant effects on these results. CONCLUSION: These findings show that intercropping is a viable practice to decrease insecticide use in wheat production systems. Nevertheless, other practices could be combined with intercropping to favour natural enemies and enhance pest control. [less ▲]

Semiochemicals are involved in tritrophic interactions and affect the behaviors of both herbivores and beneficial insects. Many volatile molecules from the wheat plant [Triticum aestivum L. (Gramineae)] have previously been identified. To understand their effects on aphids and related auxiliaries. [Methods] The impact of four of these volatiles; methyl-salycilate, cis-3-hexenyl acetate, hexenol, and 1-hexanol, was tested on the wheat aphid [Sitobion avenae (Fabricus) (Homoptera: Aphididae)] and two major predators of this pest encountered in field crops, the hoverfly (Episyrphus balteatus (DeGeer) (Diptera: Syrphidae)] and the multicoloured Asian ladybird [Harmonia axyridis (Pallas) (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)]. Different doses of these chemicals were tested by performing four arm-olfactometer and wind-tunnel assays. [Results] The results show that methyl-salycilate seemed to be attractive only toward H. axyridis but 3-hexenyl acetate and hexenol were attractive to both S. avenae and H. axyridis. However, these positive responses decreased with increased dose of the tested compounds. 3-hexenyl acetate also induced positive response in E. balteatus but 1-hexanol was more attractive to aphids than to their natural enemies. [Conclusion] In conclusion, these results highlight the potential benefit of combining methyl-salycilate, 3-hexenyl acetate and hexenol in push and pull traps aimed to control S. avenae. Contrary to the three aforementioned compounds, 1-hexanol did not seem to have much potential as a semiochemical for the biological control of aphids.
