1- Beneficial insects are important in agriculture because they kill bugs that are bad to crops, they help with the earth's soil such as earth worms providing nutrient in their waste, and they also polinate crops which help them to grow.
2- Same insects are not always beneficially in different systems this is because they ruin some crops for example the cabbage butterfly babies, they eat the cabbage but the butterfly polinates it.
3- Yield potential is how much your plant produces and you can maximize this by making sure your plant your plant gets enough water, sunlight, etc. Basically taking care of it good so that it grows strong.
