Herbicide discovery in light of rapidly spreading resistance and ever increasing regulatory hurdles

According to the UN the global population is expected to grow to almost 10 billion people in 2050. This means that the demand for food, feed and fiber will double while at the same time agriculture...

Use of Biocontrol Agents and Botanicals in Integrated Management of Botrytis Cinerea in Table‐Grape Vineyards

BACKGROUND The increasing interest on biological control agents (BCAs) and botanicals (BOTs) is due to the increasing awareness on environmental and human health risks associated to the usage of...

Using SDS‐PAGE gel finger printing to identify soft bodied wood boring insect larvae to species

BACKGROUND This paper describes the progress which we have made assessing the feasibility of “finger printing” using imaged SDS‐PAGE gels of haemolymph proteins, to identify soft bodied wood...

Characterization of UDP‐glucuronosyltransferase genes and their possible roles in multi‐insecticide resistance in Plutella xylostella (L.)

BACKGROUND Uridine diphosphate‐glucuronosyltransferases (UGTs), as multifunctional detoxification enzymes, play important roles in the biotransformation of various compounds. However, their roles...

Influence of lipophilicity in O‐acyl and O‐alkyl derivatives of Juglone and Lawsone. A Structure‐Activity Relationship study in the search for natural herbicide models

BACKGROUND Naphthoquinones are known for their broad range of biological activities. Given the increasing demands of consumers in relation to food quality and growing concerns about the impact of...

Camera traps and activity signs to estimate wild boar density and derive abundance indices
