Biopesticide treatments with novel mode of action

Wednesday, March 25, 2015

Whole extracts and fractions of the ground pine, Ajuga chamaepitys, which may contain potential antifeedant clerodane diterpenoids, were tested for their biological activity on the diamondback Plutella xylostella and tomato leaf miner Tuta absoluta. Other secondary metabolites, phenolic acids and benzoxazinoids, were tested for their biological activity against several insect species, and for inhibition of mycotoxin production by Fusarium sp. in wheat.
