Modern agriculture is characterized by simplified cropping systems, associated with negative effects on environment, biodiversity and biological control potential. Cultivar mixtures are often presented as a more efficient and sustainable alternative due to additive effects of cultivar properties and pest reduction, but previous studies have provided equivocal results for this claim. Therefore, a better understanding of the processes underlying the effects of crop genotypic diversity on plant and herbivore responses is needed.
