Molasses applied to soils feeds soil microbes. Activating
soil biology can impact above-ground insect pests by altering
plant metabolism -- especially relating to sap pH and amino
acids -- in addition to controlling to soil-borne diseases which are
the usual target pathogens of enhanced soil biology.
Likewise, I recall some research underway to understand the
effect of compost utilization on arthropod pests.
Likewise, I recall some research on infra-red detection of hot
zones on plant surfaces where insects attacked.
The application of humus management=biology, mineral balancing,
and energetics is the three-part approach in ecofarming.
