Yet, flexibility in the use of fertilizers as chemical cues is conserved, and that may help beneficial insects to specifically focus on the odor of plants that carry potential plant hosts and avoid plants that are only attacked by non-hosts. These results support the still controversial notion that fertilizer elements, at least in part, help plants to serve as functional signals to attract the enemies of the harmful insects.

These observations declare the benefits of the tri-trophic interactions as an ecological phenomenon in particular and the food chain in general. Additionally, this study may be useful to be used as a predictable model with the associated beneficial insects which may have key roles in overall aphid suppression or regulating its population.
Impact of fertilizers on potato phenology characteristics and the cotton aphid population density seems to be variable based on types and ratios of the fertilizers.

Interfacing the impact of natural enemies plant-pest-natural enemies through tri-trophic relationship within the food chain verified to be straightforward way of predicting on the impact of beneficial insects-guild on the cotton aphid population density.

NewSage Press, The soil did not interfere in any of these three parameters. The nutritional quality of the host plant, as well as, the conditions for consumption, can affect female fecundity.
In addition, malnourished aphids tend to die before producing their full expected lifetime fecundity Leather These characteristics may, therefore, be used in the selection of resistant cultivars. In the present study, regardless of the cultivar and soil where sugarcane was grown, the increase in silicon content of these plants after Si provisioning affected the spittlebug nymph survivorship, and male and female longevity, which are all important aspects of plant resistance to insects.
However, the resistance of a plant to an insect pest may not be simply related to the total quantity of silicon, but where and how this element is distributed and organized in the plant. Miller et al showed that leaf sheaths of certain wheat and oat cultivars resistant to Phytophaga destructor Say exhibited a more complete distribution of silicon deposits on the surface than did susceptible cultivars.
These authors suggest that the silicon deposition in susceptible plants may allow the larvae of P. Thus, the application of silicon in sugarcane growing areas, especially where susceptible cultivars are grown, may reduce the chances of the spittlebug population to reach the economic damage level.
We can also conclude that SP is the most unsuitable cultivar to M. Thus, the results obtained on the biological aspects of the spittlebug M. As the results of this study can collaborate with integrated pest management practices in sugarcane fields, further studies on the interactions of plant cultivars, soil types and silicon application affecting the resistance of plants to insects should be developed.
