Upland Cress OG
Barbarea verna
syn. Winter Cress
A low growing, very cold hardy, biennial vegetable with a delicate, peppery flavour to use in salads or as a cooked green. The yellow blossoms attract beneficial insects including bees.
An ABC Gardening Australia segment talked about using cress as a dead-end trap crop for Cabbage White butterflies. The moths and butterflies are attracted to the cress and lay their eggs on the leaves but when the caterpillars hatch, they take a bite out of the leaves and die.

Nature's Way DIPEL Caterpillar Control BFA Organic
A pest control mainstay for organic growers worldwide. Dipel contains Bacillus thuringiensis, (Bt) which is highly effective and specific against most species of leaf eating caterpillars including lawn armyworm syn. lawn grub, cotton bollworm, cabbage moth, cabbage white butterfly, green looper, lightbrown apple moth, native budworm, pear looper, vine moth, soybean looper and tobacco looper. This biological control is a bacterial stomach poison for all caterpillars, which is mixed with water and sprayed onto both sides of foliage. It must be ingested by the actively feeding caterpillar which dies 3-4 days later. It is not a contact spray. It is totally safe for beneficial insects, including ladybirds and bees as well as fish, birds, mammals and pets. Bt is broken down by sunlight within a few days, so repeated applications may be necessary. Supplied as 1 carton containing 4 packs of 10 grams with each 10 grams making up to 10 litres of spray. Active constituent: 8640 International units of potency per mg of Bacillus Thuringiensis var. Kurstaki. Material Safety Data Sheet
