Insecticide resistance in the horn fly: alternative control strategies
Abstract The horn fly, Haematobia irritans (Linnaeus 1758) (Diptera: Muscidae) is one of the most widespread and economically important pests of cattle. Although insecticides have been used for flyExpand
Docosahexaenoic acid (C22:6n-3, DHA) and astaxanthin production by Thraustochytriidae sp. AS4-A1 a native strain with high similitude to Ulkenia sp.: evaluation of liquid residues from food industry
Abstract Thraustochytriidae sp. AS4-A1, a native strain with high similitude to Ulkenia sp., able to produce docosahexaenoic acid (C22:6 n  − 3, DHA) and astaxanthinExpand
Winter host component reduces colonization by bird-cherry-oat aphid,Rhopalosiphum padi (L.) (homoptera, aphididae), and other aphids in cereal fields
Methyl salicylate, a volatile component ofPrunus padus, the winter host ofRhopalosiphum padi, was found to reduce colonization of the summer host by this aphid. The compound was identified by gasExpand
Microbial volatiles as plant growth inducers.
Agricultural practices require novel products that allow sustainable development and commercial production according to the needs of farmers and consumers. Therefore, in the last decade, eco-friendlyExpand
Evaluation of liquid residues from beer and potato processing for the production of docosahexaenoic acid (C22:6n-3, DHA) by native thraustochytrid strains
Liquid residues from beer (RB) and potato (RP) processing were evaluated as carbon sources for the production of docosahexaenoic acid (C22:6n-3, DHA) by two native Thraustochytriidae sp., M12-X1 andExpand
Variation in highbush blueberry floral volatile profiles as a function of pollination status, cultivar, time of day and flower part: implications for flower visitation by bees.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Studies of the effects of pollination on floral scent and bee visitation remain rare, particularly in agricultural crops. To fill this gap, the hypothesis that bee visitation toExpand
Evidence of Contact Pheromone Use in Mating Behavior of the Raspberry Weevil (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)
ABSTRACT Numerous studies of insect species have shown that a subset of female cuticular hydrocarbons is used as short-range or contact pheromones. Here, we studied the possible use of contactExpand
Semiochemicals Mediating Spacing Behavior of Bird Cherry-Oat Aphid, Rhopalosiphum padi Feeding on Cereals
Olfactometry using an apterous individual of Rhopalosiphum padi (L.) showed an arresting effect by volatiles from a wheat seedling and a repellent effect by volatiles from a wheat seedling infestedExpand
Olfactometer-Assessed Responses of Aphid Rhopalosiphum padi to Wheat and Oat Volatiles
Volatiles from wheat and oat seedlings elicited attraction in apterae and alatae Rhopalosiphum padi. Cereal volatiles were identified by GC-MS and olfactometric tests were performed with eachExpand
Effects of Drying Techniques on Murtilla Fruit Polyphenols and Antioxidant Activity
‘Murtilla’ (Ugni molinae Turcz) is a native Chilean species that belongs to the Myrtaceae family. It produces a small, globular fruit with pleasant flavor and recognized antioxidant activity.Expand
