This article at the Rodale Institute website summarizes a fascinating conference held last June at UC Berkely called the California Conference on Biological Control and Organic Production.? Amongst the research papers were two papers on biofumigants which sounds like guild plantings to me.? For instance?Brocolli planted near trees?is effective against the Verticillium wilt fungus which can attack Cherries and other stonefruit trees.? The entire article summarizing the research papers is worth a read.
