Feeding on the roots of many common garden crops the larvae infect plant roots, causing the development of root-knot galls. With the root system destroyed basically the plant starves to death. Perennial vegetables—crops that you plant just once and harvest year after year—are relatively rare in North American gardens. With the exception of asparagus, rhubarb and artichokes, most gardeners are probably unaware of the tasty, extremely low-maintenance bounty that can be harvested when many annual crops aren’t available.

Carrots, dill, parsley, and parsnip attract beneficial insects— praying mantises, ladybugs, and spiders—that dine on insect pests.

Much of companion planting is common sense: Lettuce, radishes, and other quick-growing plants sown between hills of melons or winter squash will mature and be harvested long before these vines need more leg room.

In most cases, the aim is to introduce a new trait to the plant which does not occur naturally in the species. As of26 plant species have been genetically modified and approved for commercial release in at least one country.
