Abstract:Cucurbit crops are affected by several insect-vectored virus disorders and phytotoxemias resulting from insect feeding. Results of a field experiment with zucchini in monoculture or interplanted with either a white clover living mulch or a buckwheat dying mulch are reported. The living mulch appeared more suitable in reducing aphid numbers and associated problems in the crop.
