Permaculture Guilding and Companion Planting - Upisf

  1. 1. Guilds and Companion PlantingAdvantages of companion planting:  Flavor enhancement: some plants, especially herbs, seem to subtly change the flavor of other plants around them. Such as Basil is known to enhance the flavor of tomatoes.  Hedged investment: multiple plants in the same space increase the odds of some yield being given, even if one category encounters catastrophic issues  Level interaction: plants which grow on different levels in the same space, perhaps providing ground cover or working as a trellis for another plant  Nitrogen fixation: plants which fix nitrogen in the ground, making it available to other plants  Pest suppression: plants which repel insects, plants, or other pests like nematodes or fungi, through chemical means  Positive hosting: attracts or is inhabited by insects or other organisms which benefit plants, as with ladybugs or some “good nematodes”  Protective shelter: one plant type of plant may serve as a wind break, or shade from noonday sun, for anotherPermaculture Guilding:  Each of the elements of a guild is performing functions  Each element performs multiple functions  Each function is supported by multiple elements  More diverse, more resilient, more effective designPlant Good Neighbors Bad Neighbors Miscellaneous NotesAsparagus Tomatoes, parsley, basil A substance called asparagin in asparagus repels certain tomato pests. * Alliums Stunt GrowthBroad Beans Broccoli.

This list is intended to focus on plants that would work in all areas of San Francisco, including fog-inundated west-side (exceptions noted). It is assumed that the value of this list could be enhanced significantly by thefollowing:  adding more support plants (e.g., nitrogen fixers, esp. perennial legume shrubs and trees)  inventorying existing backyard/park successes (SF Permaculture Guild has Joomla website to do this –  identifying successful companion strategies and polyculture opportunities (including animals)  identifying additional natives with simple/readily applicable edible uses  listing medicinals (the list as of now has few medicinals)  adding additional fowl forage plants (e.g., duck feed, chicken feed plants that require little/no processing)  identifying simple and tasty recipes that anyone can use to easily prepare tasty meals  NOT included on this sheet: Cane berries, many other berries, fruit/nut trees, many fruiting vines, perennial herbs 1.

  31. 31. ~Companion Planting INCREASES Food Production by 250 PercentOne of the goals of research in South Africa is to look at ways to boost food production with thepractice of intercropping (companion planting, or growing crops together) a cereal grain crop, likesorghum, with bean crops. We have been intercropping sorghum with legumes planted in row of zaipits.Why grow beans? Being legumes, bean crops can improve soils by converting nitrogen from the airinto forms that crops can use.The crops we are working with are quite tolerant of dry conditions and produce vines that cover theground, protect6ing it from the intense tropical sun and creating an environments in which soilmicroorganisms, can thrive.Moreover, the legumes provide the farmer with a harvest of dried, edible beans.What are zai holes? The zai system originated in West Africa as a way to cope with drought and hardencrusted soil. Drought tolerant grain crops such as sorghum or millet are planted in pits about 12inches, 6 inches deep.With the excavated soil thrown to the downhill side, the pits act as tiny water catchment basins,making maximum use of what little rainfall is received. Several handfuls of manure are traditionallyplaced in each pit, concentrating nutrients near the crop roots.Have we seen any benefits? The results we have so far are from year one of a sorghum-legumesintercropping strategy within the zai system. Most of the legumes we have tried have grown verywell, but cowpea produced the most dried beans.It increases total grain production by 1,000 kilograms (250%) from 400 kilograms per hectarewhen grown sorghum alone to about 1,400 kilograms per hectare when grown together withcowpeas.It also increased soil nitrogen as well as nitrogen taken up by the sorghum plants.All of this is very encouraging from the perspective of the smallholder farmer, because it means theyhave a way to improve their soils while greatly increasing food production.
  32. 32. ~NATURAL SOLUTIONS in Africa by Using Companion PlantingAcross East Africa, thousands of farmers are planting weeds in their maize fields (CompanionPlanting). Bizarre as it sounds, their technique is actually raising yields by giving the insect pestssomething else to chew on besides maize.It is better than pesticides and a lot cheaper, said Ziadin Khan, whose idea it is.And it has raised farm yields by 60-70 Percents.In East Africa, maize fields face two major pests, and Khan has a solution to both. The first is aninsect called the stem borer. True to its name, it s larvae eat their way through a third of the regionsmaize most years.But Khan discovered that the borer in even fonder of a local weed, napier grass. By planting napiergrass in their fields , farmers can lure the stem borers away from the maize and into a honey trap. Forthe grass produces a sticky substance that traps and kills stem borer larvae.The second major pest is Striga, a parasitic plant that wrecks 10 billion dollars worth damage onmaize crops every year, threating the livelihoods of one hundred million Africans.Weeding Striga is one of the most time consuming activities for millions of African women farmers,says Khan.But he has an antidote: another weed, called Desmodium. It seems to release some sort of chemicalthat Striga does not like. At any rate, where farmers plant Desmodium between rows of maize, Strigawill not grow.Khans cheap fixes for Striga and stem borer are spreading like wildfire through the fields of EastAfrica.Trials on more than 2,000 farms are finished. It is out of our hands now, says Khans boss HansHerren , who is the director of the International Centre for Insect Physiology and Ecology in Nairobi.The ideas are being taken up by framers in countries such as Ethiopia where we have never worked.Khans novel way of fighting pests is one of the host of Low-Tech Innovations boostingproduction by 100 percent or more on millions of poor Thirds World farms in the pastdecade.This Sustainable Agriculture just happens to be the biggest movement in Third World Farmingtoday, dwarfing the tentative forays in genetic manipulation. It seems peasant farmers have a longway to go before they exhaust the possibilities of traditional agriculture
