The emerging paradigm in crop protection—agroecological approaches to pest management for sustainable agriculture—emphasizes on the incorporation of ecological principles into pest management while ensuring high productivity and profitable harvests without causing harm to the environment. The restructuring of the crop production system to incorporate preventative ecological measures that keep organisms from reaching pest status is the long-term pest management strategy. The use of biological processes has been given emphasis for agroecological crop protection through biodiversity while also preserving as well as improving soil health (fertility, biological activity, structure, etc.). The preventive strategies [above- and below – ground habitat management (crop/soil management)] rather than reactive strategies form the basis of agroecological pest management.
