Abstract

An  Agri-Environmental  Scheme  (AES)  was designed  to  enhance  flower  availability  in  crops using  local  wild  plants.  The  goals  of  this research  were  to  determine  the  impact  of  four wild plants on three cash corps, focusing on the diversity  and  abundance  of  insect  pollinators, and  to  test  the  efficacy  of  this  scheme  using farmland on the northern slope of Mount Slamet. This  research  was  done  using  a  split  block design,  with  the  three  cash  crops  as  blocks (strawberry  [Fragaria  x  ananassa  Duchesne], chili  pepper  [Capsicum  spp.],  and  tomatoes [Solanum  lycopersicum  L.])  and  four  wild  plant species  as  treatments  (Cleome  rutidosperma, Borreria laevicaulis, Euphorbia heterophylla, and Tridax  procumbens) at  different  precentages (0, 5, 10, and 15 %) of cash crop plant density. The results  show  that  growing  wild  plants  with  cash crops  enhanced  the  abundance  and diversity  of insect pollinators. Moreover, the addition of wild plant  species  to  the  crops  at  four  densities  had significantly different effects on insect pollinators in  terms  of  abundance  and  diversity.  The  com- bination of 15 % C. rutidospermae and tomatoes had  the  largest  population  of  insect  pollinators. From the experiments it concluded  that an AES could  be  implemented  in  farmland  on  the northern slope of Mount Slamet.
