Controlling Cabbage Stem Flea Beetle with intercropping/trap crops

Ideas from Groundswell 2019

Farmers Tom Pearson and Mark Horton were both interested in ways of controlling cabbage stem flea beetle with non chemical methods related to intercropping or drilling trap crops before OSR establishes. For example drilling buckwheat or berseem clover as frost sensitive companions or broadcasting clover prior to OSR establishment.
