... makes it harder for voracious insects or fungal diseases to spread from plant to plant. Also, the squash release small amounts of cucurbitacins, which inhibit herbivores. The beans, too, produce a substance that deters the corn earworm. Thus, no need for chemical pesticides. Second, the large leaves of...
