Abstract/Contents:"The weed Ageratum conyzoides, as well as other weeds which are beneficial for natural enemies of the citrus red mite Panonychus citri, has been planted or conserved as ground cover in an area of 135 000 ha of citrus orchards in China. Substantial ecological and economic benefits have been achieved. Studies on the effect of ground cover plants on arthropods in ground cover and in citrus trees are summarized. Ground cover plants function as supplementary sources of natural enemies of citrus arthropod pests."
