Mowing practices to encourage beneficial insects
Reducing mowing - less disturbance to beneficial populations, allows grasses to produce pollen and weeds to flower and produce nectar.
Alternate row mowing, less disruptive than mowing all the rows at the same time, which results in a slow re-establishment of beneficial insects
Part row mowing is even better to provide even quicker restablishment of beneficial insects
Leave Mohawh or centre strips during harvest if rows are wide enough
In this case, post harvest, mowing has been done on tree line only and inter row allowed to bulk up. A slasher will be required to mow the inter row.
