Lemon Grass as Intercrop can help control fruit and shoot borer
#1
In one research, intercropping lemon grass (Cymbopogon citratus Stapf.) with eggplant (Solanum melongena L.) helped to control eggplant fruit and shoot borer (Leucinodes orbonalis Guenee) and increase yield when compared to monocropping and the use of pesticides. But with chemical control, there was less damaged by the pest.

What can you use lemon grass for? Is there ready market for it? Possible uses include drying and mixing it with livestock and poultry feed to boost productivity. There are lots of scientific papers that have confirm the health benefits of lemon grass. Selling it might be a bit tricky because many people don't value herbs. But I think that producers of herbal medicine will buy it.
