In the Kiskunság, 16 flowering plots in the middle of large agricultural areas were created. Our goal is to evaluate the impact of these plots, for example, whether the frequency of beneficial (and harmful) arthropods increases, and how far this extends into the adjacent agricultural fields. Are we infesting the wheat from the flower plots? Are we spreading predators or parasitoids to control pests? Is there a difference between arthropod groups or the crops grown or the edges with different structures? Hopefully this will help us to argue successfully to farmers about the benefits of sown flower fields and more broadly, habitat restoration.
What effect do the newly established wildflower plots have on neighboring agricultural area
