Antifeedants in tropical pest management

  • R. C. Saxena (a1)

Abstract

Use of plant derivatives for insect pest control was common in the tropics before the advent of synthetic pesticides. Plants such as neem, Azadirachta indica A. Juss, chinaberry, Melia azedarach L., and Warburgia spp., have been known for insect repellent and antifeedant properties in addition to other plants possessing insecticidal and growth regulating properties. Practical usefulness of antifeedants derived from plants for management of insect pests in selected field crops and stored grains is discussed. These products would, however, require some definitions of quality control and standardization of biological properties for large-scale use.

L'utilisation d'extraits de plantes pour le contrôle des ravageurs était une pratique commune avant l'usage des pesticides synthétiques. En plus d'autres plantes qui possèdent une activité insecticide et régulatrice de la croissance, des plantes comme le Neem, Azadirachta indica A. Juss, chinaberry Melia azedarach L., Warburgia spp, sont connues depuis longtemps pour leurs activités repellente et inhibitrice de la nutrition sur les insectes. L'utilité pratique de dérivés de plantes à travers l'activité inhibitrice sur la nutrition des insectes est discutée pour le contrôle de certains ravageurs en champs et dans les stocks. Ces produits nécessitent cependant, la définition de contrôles de qualité et la standardisation de leurs propriétés biologiques pour leurs usages à large échelle.
