Maca is reputed to have natural insect-repellent properties and is sometimes grown alongside other highland crops such as bitter potatoes as Andean farmers believe it protects the underground tubers from pests. In the Junín region of Peru maca is consumed in large quantities as it provides a readily available and highly nutritious food source in areas where traditional agricultural practices struggle.
