Abstract

Agroforestry systems of the hilly regions of the north east are small scale, primitive land use systems, evolving through traditional knowledge requiring very little inputs in terms of irrigation, fertilizers and pesticides. The different components of the agroforestry systems were analyzed for their natural enemy complex through a monthly sampling programme. Maintenance and potential role of natural enemies’ complex in various compartments of such systems are discussed in the light of land use practices and holding size.
