    Repelling insects by creating effective crop combinations uses plants’ natural fragrance, oils, compounds, and colors to chase pests away. For example, some aromatic compounds may mask the scent of companion plants: the aroma of garlic will chase away bean beetles and potato bugs.   Impacts Research conducted on sweet potato insect pest management systems in this project helped growers reduce losses due to insect pests, enabled growers to use insecticides more effectively, and increased their profitability. We focused on the timing of preplant soil incorporated insecticide treatments and the efficacy of lay-by applications.

      India has a relatively low, around %, global share of export of vegetables because of large domestic consumption and the attack of insect pests (10, species), diseases (, diseases, caused by viruses, bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms), nematodes ( species) and weeds (Hall ; Dhaliwal et al. ).Cited by: 1.

    Account Log In. If your account was created prior to November 18th, you will need to create a new account. Some varieties of sweet potato (Regal, for instance) have some resistance to the weevil as well as other beetle pests but the most popular orange-fleshed variety, Beauregard, is highly susceptible. Of varieties currently grown in Florida, Jewel is the only one with some resistance to insects (flea beetles).
